Thread: Reducing food intake.

    Default Reducing food intake.

    Reducing food intake.

    On the Science Channel, A program on starvation did a study on
    rats. On set a normal diet and one side a limited starvation
    diet. The limited diet rats lived twice as long.

    Speculation said humans could live longer lives.

    Stating the average human consumes 4,000 calories a day,
    reducing intake *could* add 10 to 15 years.

    While not exacting science, eating less is healthier than
    overeating rich or fatty foods.

    When I was reducing, I kept it between 1,500 and 2,000
    calories a day. I haven't tracked my caloric intake in years.

    Breakfast and orange or lime'd water keep me satisfied all
    day, with occasional snacks, yogurt, grapes, etc. Sure some of
    my breakfasts aren't weight watchers worthy but I'm still fit
    and trim, sometimes verging on skinny.

    This post should in no way be construed as dietary advice,
    just a few interesting numbers.

    gregz,

    I haven't the faintest idea. Maybe that's how the Cooking
    Channel got their "Stay hungry" slogan? It sounds better sense
    than "Stay Full."

    Best,

    Andy
