STOP DOING THIS TO ADD EXTRA 5 YEARS TO YOUR LIFESPAN!




Avoid overeating


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


Studies of human populations renowned for longevity also observe links between low calorie intake, an extended lifespan, and a lower likelihood of disease


What's more, calorie restriction may help reduce excess body weight and belly fat, both of which are associated with shorter lifespans


That said, long-term calorie restriction is often unsustainable and can include negative side effects, such as increased hunger, low body temperature, and a diminished sex drive


Whether calorie restriction slows aging or extends your lifespan is not yet fully understood.


SUMMARY Limiting your calories may help you live longer and protect against disease. However, more human research is needed.
