restriction is the practice of limiting
dietary energy and take in the hope that
it will improve health and retard aging
in human subjects calorie restriction
has been shown to lower cholesterol
fasting glucose and blood pressure some
consider these to be biomarkers of aging
since there is a correlation between
these markers and risk of diseases
associated with
aging these eating patterns are being
studied as possible ways to maintain
good health and live longer they are not
temporary weight loss plans interest in
their potential health and aging
benefits stems from decades of research
with a variety of animals calorie
restriction is the only known dietary
measure capable of extending maximum
lifespan as opposed to average lifespan
in calorie restriction energy intake is
minimized but sufficient quantities of
vitamins minerals and other important
nutrients must be eaten you may have
heard about calorie restriction and
fasting diets and wondered why they’re
getting so much attention in the news
aren’t they just other terms for dieting
to lose weight no they’re not calorie
restriction means reducing average daily
caloric intake below what is typical or
habitual without malnutrition or
deprivation of essential nutrients in a
fasting diet a person does not eat at
all or severely limits intake during
certain times of the day week or month a
practical effect of a fasting diet may
be fewer calories because there is less
time for regular eating some study
results suggest that calorie restriction
may have health benefits for humans but
more research is needed before we
understand its long-term effects there
