The Benefits of Caloric Restriction Without the Actual Restricting January 26, 2020 22 By William Morgan CategoryArticlesTagsaging caloric restriction calories DHEA eggs fertility fiber hormones Lifespan plant-based diet stress supplements vegans vegetarians 22 Comments KeithNLan Scott says: July 24, 2012 at 6:55 pm I like to think that as we age, we'll get some wisdom about how to deal with the problems we encounter. Condemning everyone to painful agonizing death (current reality) is really a silly way to deal with overpopulation or environmental issues. Surely we can do better than that? Reply Chuck Frasher says: July 24, 2012 at 7:50 pm DHEA supplementation not recommended? Not recommended by whom? I have no problem finding pharmaceutical grade DHEA. Also, if increased DHEA was responsible for the benefits of calorie restriction, then raising DHEA while eating an average diet should work, right? But it doesn't. But here's something to consider. If you practice a lactovegetarian diet, then you are practicing calorie restriction by default. So maybe increased DHEA is just one of many positive results of practicing CR. Reply Shane Caraway says: July 25, 2012 at 1:43 am Why do you say a lactovegetarian diet necessitates calorie restriction? Reply missvitreous says: July 25, 2012 at 2:39 am That's cool! Reply natureasintended says: January 26, 2013 at 1:14 pm Yes, calorie restriction is linked with longevity due to low methionine, which is low in a plant based diet anyway, therefore calorie restriction isn't necessary. Eat as much as you desire on a low fat, vegan diet. No animal in nature calorie restricts. 🙂 Reply Deborah Bennett says: February 26, 2013 at 11:50 pm What's the source for that chart of longest living organisms?

Reply meow0meow7 says: January 19, 2017 at 4:06 am What if you want to be vegetarian but also want to die? Reply Vegan Walk says: December 5, 2017 at 5:08 am I had my bloodwork done recently. My DHEA was low. I'm 44. I've been vegan for 7 years. I wonder what I'm doing wrong. My cholesterol is excellent. My vitamin D was low too but I'm taking supplements for that and B12 only… what do you all think I should do about my DHEA? 🙁 Reply JE ENN says: February 26, 2018 at 7:14 am Dear doctor please tell you are a vegan?♡ Reply Illidan Stormrage says: April 28, 2018 at 9:09 pm In deep doc , even the lobster is immortal if wasn't for his great ability to attract bacteria, this is the vid I request about the legend Li ching yuen?I've looking info into an organism that is almost "still" their entired inmortal life.

You could always eat plenty of greens and you are still calorie restricted. It's misunderstood when people think you are supposed to be hungry while on it. I eat C.R. as a rule. Trouble is I always have to be at a family function or I'll be out with my friend. It's difficult when most people don't eat vegetables, or very little. Most eat bread, meat, gravy and mashed. Or they eat mac 'n cheese. Maybe fettuccini alfredo. My friend eats only saucy dishes and casseroles. He doesnt know why he gets tingles in his feet and legs. I tell him but he just blows it off. He is getting heavier than before. I am getting sick of watching him order his slop at the restaurant. What really bothers me is he always asks me to eat cheesecake or pie with him after dinner. He knows I dont eat high fat but he is so dumb he forgets and always asks me if I'd like pie. At this point I'm going to have to stop eating out with him or smear his pie all over his face.
