Will Cutting Calories Make You Live Longer?

“Restricting calories can slow your basal metabolic rate—the energy you need to sustain all normal daily functions,” says endocrinologist and lead author Leanne Redman. “After two years, the lower rate of metabolism and level of calorie restriction was linked to a reduction in oxidative damage to cells and tissues.” Now, the study wasn’t long enough to show that calorie restriction definitively increased lifespans; That trial would take decades. The first says that the slower an organism’s metabolism, the longer it will live.[5]
