Anti-Aging Diet

The anti-aging diet is one that restricts calorie intake by 30–50% of normal or recommended intake with the goal of increasing human lifespan by at least 30%.

People on the diet also have improved health providing they consume adequate vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients.

The goal of the anti-aging diet is to slow the aging process, thereby extending the human lifespan. Even though it is not a weight loss diet, people taking in significantly fewer calories than what is considered normal by nutritionists are likely to lose weight. Exercise is not part of calorie reduction diets.

The primary benefits of the anti-aging diet are improved health and prevention or forestalling diseases such as heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s.
