Easier Way to Achieve Calorie Restriction Benefits

Calorie Restriction

Story at-a-glance -

  • Calorie restriction is known to alter the expression of hundreds to thousands of genes, some of which are related to longevity and some which play a role in metabolism, cell growth, reproduction, immune response, and more
  • In fruit flies, the beneficial longevity changes occurred within days of restricting calories
  • The life-extension effects of calorie restriction also occur among old animals that have never been on a calorie-restricted diet before, which implies that in humans, it may also lead to rapid changes in genetic expression that promote longevity
  • Research suggests the benefits of calorie restriction can be achieved through intermittent fasting, which is far easier for most people to stick with
  • My personal recommendation for most people is to fast every day by scheduling your eating into a narrower window of time, such as between the hours of 11am and 7pm (so you’re essentially just skipping breakfast and making lunch your first meal of the day)
