Based on this article I read on aging and disease, I'm going to continue to do 2 IF's/wk.
The premise is that if you reduce 30% of your diet you can increase your life span by 50%. Researchers were trying to pinpoint how much to cut back on without any of the negative effects of cutting out too much calories. They found 30% to be the best target. Small amount of negative side effects with maximum amount of health benefits. BUT this research was done on rats so I wouldn't expect that us humans would see the same results. However, your body is not working as hard to process all that food and not taxing your system as much. Hopefully there would be side effects of living longer and healthier by cutting 30%.
What do you think about this article and do you think that cutting out 30% is too much, or should we cut out more? Is there other research that had targeted and optimal amount to reduce caloric intake by IF's?
