Studies link moderate calorie cuts to stronger muscles and longer life.
Moderate calorie cuts can lead to stronger muscles and longer life, according to a new study.
Reducing calorie intake by 15% over two years can improve muscle quality and reduce inflammation.
Muscle quality and inflammation are both key factors in aging.
The study involved 218 participants who were randomly assigned to either a calorie-restricted group or a control group.
After two years, the calorie-restricted group had improved muscle quality and reduced inflammation compared to the control group.
The researchers suggest that moderate calorie cuts may be a simple and effective way to improve health and longevity.
However, it is important to consult with a healthcare professional before making any significant changes to your diet.
Further research is needed to determine the long-term effects of calorie restriction on health and aging.
