Calorie restriction has been shown in studies to extend lifespan in mammals by up to 30 percent

Calorie restriction has consistently has extended the lifespan and although it has never been tested in humans evidence suggests that the rate of metabolism is a heavy influence on the rate of aging. If you consume more calorie the rate of metabolism must go up, if you eat less calories the rate of metabolism must go down.

When focusing on nutrition it's not important to eat a lot of calories, what is important is the nutrition density, which is the amount of vitamins and minerals. The ideal diet would provide the minimal amount of calories with the highest nutrition density. Since the perfect food does not exist and there seems to be no market or political forces to design the perfect functional or nutrient dense food the problem persists in the western diet which tends to be very high calorie and very low nutrient.

Quality of nutrition in food is often sacrificed for taste because it's easier to chemically make something taste good than it is to make it healthy. As a result there are literal poisons within common food products which speed up the process of aging. These poisons include white sugar, white flour, white salt, but they also include high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners like aspartame, and the array of strange chemicals that few of us truly understand what they are. At this point we would need a chemist to check the foods we eat for poisons, yes it's that bad.

Chemicals can affect hormone levels to make people get fat, to lower testosterone levels, to suppress the immune system, to cause insulin resistance. The damages of these chemicals will be saved for another essay as the focus of this essay is calorie restriction. One important fact in properly understanding calorie restriction is to understand that it is not the same as malnutrition. Calorie restriction requires careful vitamin supplementation and consultation with your doctor or nutritionist to check your blood for any deficiencies or for high levels.

What calorie restriction is not

Calorie restriction is not a diet regime. It's not something you can go on and off at will without consequences. If you decide to accept a lifestyle of calorie restriction it can cause permanent changes in the metabolic rate which means if you start and stop then when you stop you could gain a lot of body fat as a result. For these reasons calorie restriction is not for everyone and if it's something to try then you must try it for 6 months to years at a time and not just try it for weeks to a month. Under calorie restriction if done right you will lose weight, but you'll feel, look, and your blood work will show vitality and health.

What foods to eat when doing calorie restriction

Shirataki noodles are perhaps one of the best low calorie foods to eat when doing calorie restriction. They are very low in calories, very low in carbs, no sugar, no salt, and high fiber. If I had to design a food for calorie restriction I would take these noodles and fortify them with vitamins and minerals because the main problem with these noodles is that they provide no vitamins and minerals. That being said if an individual is willing to take a daily vitamin supplement and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables along with these noodles then this would be a good method of calorie restriction. In order to get enough fruits and vegetables it may be wise to utilize a juicer instead of trying to eat them raw, and it's important to have enough room to store the fruits and vegetables in the fridge. Powdered fruits and vegetables are also a wonderful addition when doing calorie restriction and when choosing fruits and vegetables try to choose that which has the highest nutrition density such as Kale or a high level antioxidants with low sugar such as blueberries.

Foods to avoid when doing calorie restriction.

The foods to avoid when doing calorie restriction are nuts, fatty foods, red meats. Protein is generally okay, but it must be from lower calorie sources so it cannot be steak, pork, lamb, and in the case of chicken or fish it would have to be the lowest calorie versions. In some cases it may even be more efficient not to eat meat at all, but this is a matter of moral preference and not a matter of health benefits as there are fish which provide health benefits.

Limit exercise when doing calorie restriction.

When doing calorie restriction it's important to consider how physically active you are. If you're a very physically active person then calorie restriction is a very bad idea. The more physically active you are the more calories the body needs to repair the damage to muscle fibers and to recover from the stress. Calorie restriction does not assist with recovery, a calorie deficient also does not help if you get the flu or have an illness. In short it's not something for athletes or for anyone who desires to live like an athlete but if you're clearly not an athletic person, or if you're just trying to maintain what you have, then calorie restriction can help you maintain what you have for longer than if you consume high amounts of calories and receive the same nutritional values. Excess calories are not beneficial to human health unless you're trying to gain excess weight or mass.

Do not apply calorie restriction to children.

In children because children are growing children require excess calories. The metabolism of a child is very different from that of an adult. Adults generally maintain what they have, and as they grow older it becomes more and more difficult to maintain. Children grow stronger each year until they reach adulthood. For these reasons and for these differences it's not a good idea to calorie restrict children and anyone under 18 if they don't have a reason to do it from a doctor should probably not self experiment.

For more information on calorie restrictions there are books and resources such as the CRON diet which stands for calorie restriction with optimal nutrition. The CRON diet is just another method as an alternative to the method I present in my essay. Any method of calorie restriction must be personalized to the individual applying it. Some very low calorie or nutritionally dense foods work better for some but not for others, so each person who seriously wishes to try this must first spend months finding their favorite nutritionally dense foods, foods which satiate hunger, foods which produce energy, and in general foods which are very low in calories but which taste very good.
