Surprising Trick SLOWS Aging
If I were to ask you about the best way to slow aging or prevent disease, what would you say?
Eat more vegetables?
Stop eating processed junk food?
Spend more time in the sunlight?
If you said any of those answers, you’d be right.
But if you’re looking for the SINGLE BEST way to fight off age-related diseases—and live a longer, healthier life—there’s something you need to do that’s not on this list.
In fact, most have never heard of it.
The method is called calorie restriction—and it’s just what it sounds like:
It’s all about eating a little less, not starving yourself.
The beneficial effects of calorie restriction have been well documented in studies of animals. But this was the first study to look into the effects of calorie restriction in humans.
The results did not disappoint.
The researchers found that when people cut their calorie intake by just 15% for two years, they were able to slow the aging process, while also protecting against age-related disease.
Those are pretty hefty results for something as simple as eating a little less!
Hearing the words “calorie restriction” might make you think of eating like a bird or crash dieting.
That’s not what calorie restriction is all about.
If you typically consume 2,000 calories per day, reducing your intake by 15% means cutting just 300 calories out of your diet per day.
There are two main reason for these major benefits.
First, the calorie restriction decreased oxidative stress throughout the body. This represents a major protective effect since oxidative stress is linked to everything from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, to cancer and diabetes.
Second, calorie restriction slowed basal metabolism. Since the byproducts of metabolism are known to speed aging and disease processes, slowing metabolism makes sense as a powerful way to help prevent chronic disease.
In essence, having a slower metabolism means that you’re burning energy more efficiently.
The bonus? Calorie restriction led to weight loss, while boosting mood and quality of life.
The study involved 53 healthy people aged between 21 and 50 who were not overweight.
The fact that such a small lifestyle change can make such major health differences in people who are already considered healthy makes it even more appealing for those whose health could use a little boost.
To a brighter day,
