Avoid Filling Up Past the Full Feeling
The link between calorie intake and longevity currently generates a lot of interest. Animal studies suggest that a 10–50% reduction in normal calorie intake may increase maximum lifespan (1Trusted Source). Studies of human populations renowned for longevity also observe links between low calorie intake, an extended lifespan, and a lower likelihood of disease (2Trusted Source, 3Trusted Source, 4Trusted Source). What’s more, calorie restriction may help reduce excess body weight and belly fat, both of which are associated with shorter lifespans (5Trusted Source, 6Trusted Source, 7Trusted Source).
