Calorie restriction could improve health outcomes related to aging

September 3, 2015

A 12% restriction in calories among average or slightly overweight individuals improved risk factors for age related diseases, as well as influenced blood pressure, cholesterol and insulin resistance, according to data from a recently released NIH-funded study.

“The CALERIE results are quite intriguing. They show that this degree of sustained calorie restriction can influence disease risk factors and possible predictors of longevity in healthy, non-obese people. It will be important to learn how calorie restriction at this level affects these factors despite the lack of the predicted metabolic effects,” Evan Hadley, MD, director of NIH’s Division of Geriatrics and Clinical Gerontology, said in a press release.
