The Benefits of Reducing Calories for Longevity, Although it seems like a curse to people on a diet, the slow metabolism. Maybe it’s actually a good thing. We have known for more than a century that calorie restriction can increase the life of animals and slowing down the metabolism. May be the mechanism for this. This is probably the reason why turtles live 10 times longer than rabbits Rabbits can live between 10 and 20 years, while Harriet the tortoise apparently taken from the Galapagos Islands, not from anyone else and by Charles Darwin himself, in 1830, lived until 2006, Slowly and gloriously.
He won the race One of the ways our body slows down our resting metabolism is by creating a cleaner and more efficient mitochondria the power plants that power our cells, Just as your body passes its own fuel economy standards. These new mitochondria create the same energy with less oxygen and produce less free residual radicals. After all, our body is afraid of hunger, and so it tries to store as much energy as possible. The largest study to limit calories to date, indeed found both a slowdown in metabolism and a reduction in oxidative stress caused by free radicals, both of which can slow aging Flames that burn twice as bright burn half as long, But will this lead to longer longevity in humans is an unanswered question. Calorie restriction is often said to prolong the life of each species studied, But this is not true.
Even for all beings of the same species, Some scientists do not consider calorie restriction; it will improve people’s longevity in general. Others suggest a 20 % calorie restriction, starting at age, 25 and last for 52 years, can add 5 years to your life, Either way reduced oxidative stress is expected to improve our health Members of the calorie restriction society called himself Cronis (from calorie-restricted optimal nutrition). They seem to be in excellent health, but they are rather unique. A self-elected group of people There is no way to know until we do research. I present to you the study, CALLERS, detailed assessment of long-term effects from reducing energy intake, the first clinical trial to test the effects of calorie restriction.
Hundreds of obese men and women were separated in groups with a 2-year calorie restriction of 25 %. In the end, they managed to achieve only half of this, but lost about 8 pounds and 1.18 cm from his waist deleting more than half of their visceral fat. This means significant improvements in cholesterol levels, triglycerides insulin, sensitivity and blood pressure, 80 % of those who were overweight when they started had a normal weight at the end, compared with a 27 % increase in those who became overweight in the control group. In the famous study of Minnesota starvation, which used opponents like guinea pigs during World War II, the people studied suffered both physically and mentally.
Experiencing depression, irritability and loss of libido Participants were weak when they started and their calorie intake was halved. The KALERI study ended up being 4 times more restrictive only about 12 % below the basic caloric intake and included normal individuals which, in the United States today means moderately obese. As such, the participants in KALERI did not experience anything more from positive changes in their quality of life, with significant improvements in mood, general health, sex drive and sleep, They ended up eating only 300 calories less than before. The study So they got all these benefits physiological benefits: psychological benefits only from reducing calories, equivalent to 1 medium packet of chips from your daily diet. But what happened at the end of the study In the Minnesota Famine, Study and Calorie Deprivation Experiments carried out by the Rangers in the Army as soon as the participants were released from the restriction they quickly regained their weight and some even gained weight, The weaker.
They start the more their body. Looks it prompted them to overeat to regain that extra fat? In contrast, after completing the CALIER study, although human metabolism was slow, they regained about 50 % of their weight loss two years later.
They must have acquired new eating habits and behaviors, which allowed them to keep their weight low After prolonged calorie restriction.
For example, the desire for sweet fatty and harmful foods can actually decrease.
