EVIDENCE THAT CALORIE RESTRICTION CAUSES LIFE SPAN EXPANSION IN PRIMATES LIKE US
Not only do these Calorie restricted Rhesus monkeys show better preservation of looks and attention, but they show the typical lower blood glucose and preserved insulin sensitivity as well as lower inflammatory levels. We are seeing all the typical characteristics in these Rhesus monkeys that were seen in the long lived rodents and other mammals that achieved a greatly extended life span above the maximal life span (longest lived) member of the control (eat as much as you want = ad libitum) animals. This is very strong evidence that like this primate, humans will also greatly profit from this behavior.
Exercise also adds to the life extension benefits of CR. We now know that original calorie restriction experiments with rats and mice were extremely deprived of omega-3 oils (w-3 fish or leaf oils). When these are added to the diet, the life span extension further INCREASES because THESE ARE INVOLVED IN SHUTTING OFF THE INFLAMMATORY activation that is killing ALL of us - including CR animals. Since CR is so easy for your body to get use to, I will share what I have learned about the practical use of this procedure.
Please realize that overeating yourself to an early death is not what serves your rational self interest.
