(From azcentral.com). If something is worth saying, it's worth saying a few times: it's never too late to start a low calorie diet (like calorie restriction). Health benefits and a longer healthy lifespan are possible even if you start a low calorie diet later in life. The article offers cautions, but calorie restriction is still the current gold standard of healthy life extension, with decades of scientific research and positive studies behind it. This will help you live healthily for longer, but remember that is just a stepping stone on the way to far longer lives: we need to support medical research for the future of healthy life extension!
