Living Longer and Healthier: Diet Can Help

If you want to live longer and stay healthy, here’s one solution. Try cutting your calorie intake by 15 percent.

A recent study published in the journal Cell Metabolism suggested the 15 percent decrease for an extended period of time – at least two years. The result, according to the report, is a significant decrease in metabolism, which reduces a type of stress associated with aging.

The results are based on a two-year study of non-obese adults who reduced their caloric intake by the suggested 15 percent.

According to one theory suggested by the study, the oxidation of nutrients harms DNA, lipid and proteins, and that leads to accelerated aging. By reducing metabolism, a person decreases DNA damage and slows the aging process.

The study did not consider what people ate during the period. But it is assumed that eating healthier food will likely also help slow the aging process.
