Today, we’re going to talk about calorie restriction. Can calorie restriction slow aging?
You may have heard before that counting calories can have anti-aging effects. But, that conflicts with all of the people who have tried a low-calorie diet in the past.
It has been proven that the more you diet and lower your calories, the more you end up gaining the weight back. It also destroys your metabolism over time.
If you’re doing a low-calorie diet with high carbs, you’re going to keep your blood sugars going up and down. If you do a low-calorie diet with low fat, you’re going to be hungry, and it’s not sustainable.
The benefit of calorie restriction is epigenetics.
The two epigenetic triggers for the benefits of calorie restriction are lowering glucose and lowering insulin. The benefits aren’t coming from restricting calories. The benefits are coming from restricting glucose and insulin.
The other problem with a low-calorie diet is that people lower their nutrients. This can create nutrient deficiencies which can lead to all kinds of problems.
I don’t recommend calorie restriction. I do recommend restricting glucose which will indirectly lower your insulin. I recommend the healthy ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting. This is a low carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet that is comfortable, sustainable, and provides a ton of health benefits including anti-aging effects.
