Lower Calories, Lose Weight
Several years ago, doctors examined a small number of people from a group called the Calorie Restriction Society. The group has about 3,000 members. Early tests showed the practitioners, who call themselves "CRONies," (Calorie Restriction, Optimal Nutrition), had virtually no risks of cardiovascular disease or cancer even though their medical records said they were less healthy when they started the program.
What also intrigued researchers were claims that practitioners would live 20 to 30 percent longer and in better health. Dr. John Holloszy wrote - after the preliminary round of studies, "It's becoming clear from studies with the CRONies - and from this brief, prospective study - that calorie restriction does change some of the markers we associate with aging."
Proponents of calorie restriction, which they call "CR," boast of disappearing triglycerides, healthy levels, the elimination of low-level inflammation through the body caused by oxidation damage, lowered and more stable blood sugar, nonexistent cardiovascular disease and even instances of being cured of early stage diabetes.
