Want to live longer, look younger, have increased athletic ability and stay disease free? Eat less.

Posted on Updated on


The study results are mounting: Less calories=better and longer life. I practice fasting, which by-proxy reduces calorie intake; you can’t catch up when you quit the fast, even short fasts.

Here are two monkeys, side by side, the one on the left given about half the calories of the one on the right. The monkeys are within one year in age. According to the study, the monkey on the left is more energetic, his blood tests are perfect, while the monkey on the right looks older, acts older and his blood shows high glucose and triglycerides–and arthritis and wrinkles.

Plain and simple, we’ve got to stop eating so much.

    I always eat just enough and no more. Less eating probably also means lower cholesterol.

    I totally agree with this article!! People just eat too much these days. So much in fact that we do not even know what a proper portion is any more! When I eat with people, so often do I get, “That’s all you’re eating”. Little do they know my pack of card size tofu and base ball size rice bowl is more appropriate then they huge plates of pasta we have become accustomed to consuming.

    Good post!

    We have been beaten about the head and shoulders so long psychologically about not wasting food. SF looks to be doing a moon-bat move again.
