Recently, interest has been picking up in low-calorie diets, especially for their possible life-extending properties.
Studies with laboratory rats fed a nutritionally complete, yet calorie-restricted diet lived far longer than the control group which ate normal amounts. The lean rats also maintained youthful appearances and activity levels well into normal rat middle-age and had similar delays in age-related diseases.
A study of rhesus monkeys, genetically more similar to humans, is underway. Though not complete, so far the results support the findings of the earlier rat study. Many people aren't waiting for the final results, but are starting their own restricted regimens.
