Again, Less is More but....
German scientists say their research shows that the less you eat, the better your memory. Munster University researchers took 50 "elderly" people and used them as test subjects.
They gave them a memory test. Then put them on a diet which reduced
their caloric intake by a third. Then they gave them another memory
Other research has indicated that a calorie-restricted diet is good for all sorts of things.
The idea goes: the fewer calories you take in, the fewer diseases you get, and the longer you live. The problem is that no one knows how, or why, it works.
Here's one idea:
Most of the high calorie stuff is junk. Few vitamins, minerals, no enzymes, and lots of bad fats. Any combination of the above puts a huge physical stress on the body.
Stress of any kind sickens and kills.
What you really need to focus on is nutrition, not calories. That's why we promote the raw, organic, living foods lifestyle.
