Can Cutting Calories Help you live longer

Studies have shown that rats whose calories intake is significantly reduced live longer.While these studies are intriguing, it’s important to remember that results in animal studies don’t necessarily translate to humans. In addition, even if calorie reduction does work, it may not be realistic. most women currently consume about 2,000 calories a day and men eat about 2,500 calories.They would need to cut intake by 700 to 1,000 calories a day to by achieve the suggested anti aging benefits.Its doubtful you could maintain this intake long term without encountering some consequences of malnutrition.
