The scientific proofThe initial scientific research was done in 1934 by Dr. Clive McCay and Mary Crowell of Cornell University. They fed one group of laboratory rats a lower calorie diet than another group, and they found the underfed rats lived up to 100 percent longer (2).
Are you really going to live longer? Yes, you will live up to 100 percent longer. Yes, it's a scientifically proven fact that you will live longer. (2)
Many years later their findings were explored. Experiments with mice were conducted by Dr. Roy Walford and Richard Weindruch. Weindruch reported that low calorie diets increased life span, maintained youthful appearances and activity levels, and showed delays in age-related diseases. The results of their many experiments were summarized in their book (3).
But are you really going to live longer? Yes, it's a scientifically proven fact that you will live longer. (2)
The most recent proofThere are additional ongoing studies that investigate whether cutting calories does indeed extend life in nonhuman primates. And, so far, the results have been positive. (4) (5)
However, due to the long lifespan of nonhuman primates, these studies have not been completed.
But are you really going to live longer? Yes, it's scientifically proven fact that you will live longer. (2)
Why do you live longer?You live longer because:
- You use yourself up at a much slower pace.
- Calorie restriction is one of the very few dietary interventions that has been documented to increase lifespan.
- The positive effect of calorie restriction was proven again and again in scientific laboratory experiments.
- Scientists found it extended both the median and maximum lifespan in a variety of species including fungus, yeast, fishes, rodents and dogs.
- Calorie restriction without malnutrition was shown again and again to improve health and significantly slow down the aging process.
