Calorie restriction diet

A diet based on research on animals? That's the Calorie Restricted Diet. Research has shown that when animals eat a Calorie Restricted Diet, they live considerably longer, and this has been developed by Dr. Roy Walford into the Calorie Restricted diet.

The principle is simple - you follow a diet meal plan that restricts your calories, typically to around 20 to 25 percent less than normal, while ensuring that you still get all the vitamins and nutrients you need.
