Is Caloric Restriction Necessary for Longevity?

by Sean Croxton

A few nights ago, Donna Gates, author of The Baby Boomer Diet, came on UW Radio wielding nothing but anti-aging truth bombs.

We spoke a lot about digestion and the importance of adding fermented foods to our diet. We also talked about reproduction, A1 and A2 milk, the reasons WHY we age, and the fascinating concepts of jing and chi.

In this clip, I ask her about the science on caloric restriction, which shows that reducing the amount of calories fed to mammals increases their lifespan.

This sounds cool and all BUT cutting calories also sounds like a drag! It scores a zero on the fun meter.

Who wants to eat rabbit food and be hungry all day?

So, Donna tells us how we can use diet to mimic the effects of caloric restriction.

Pretty cool stuff!

I Don’t Wanna Get Old!

This is Part 2 of my series on aging and oxidative stress. Please read my previous post, Oxygen is Killing Us.

I don’t want to get old. Really, I’m just not interested.

Yeah, you can lecture me on the wisdom we acquire as we age. I couldn’t agree more. I’m totally down with that. But that’s not what I’m talking about. The aging I’m referring to is the kind that shuffles down the street, drives 50 mph in the fast lane, and knows when a storm is coming by how his joints feel. Nope. You can count me out of that one.
