Dr. Roth from the Institute of Aging states, “Calorie restriction is the only dietary habit known in mammals to improve both the average and maximal life spans.” Have you ever wondered why your health improves and you feel more energetic when you cut back on your consumption of food? Dr. Roth may have the answer. He believes that our bodies have evolved and adapted to periods of famine not necessarily to extend lifespan but to enable humans to reproduce. This is an ironic statement as my wife became pregnant while dieting for a photoshoot! His research has also shown that many of the health ailments that plague us today such as cancer and heart disease are decreased substantially when calories are reduced by 30%. For many of us, cutting calories by 30% only means skipping the evening snack routine. Thirty percent calorie cuts could buy you a lifetime!
