OPINION: Dr Ken Romeo 775-870-6942
If you eat less you generally lose weight. But could eating less lengthen your life span?
The answer is probably yes. Caloric restriction is known to extend the lifespan of most organisms that science has studied which may indicate that nutrient and energy regulation has a major impact on aging.
It turns out that caloric restriction modifies our cells and since the greatest risk factor for aging is neurodegeneration it is thought that caloric restriction modifies progressive cell death.
I think I’ll be skipping a few meals here and there.
Yours in Health!
