Eating less can help you live longer. As per a recent study done on worms, the group that was put on a restricted diet lived 30%-40% longer than the one that had free access to food. Slow food consumption resulted in a dramatic increase in longevity and better health in the worms. The key to long life is to reduce the amount of food on your plate by “diet restriction”. When the diet is restricted, the glucose level drops leading to mild stress at the cellular level and it triggers a clean-up of unwanted proteins thus reducing cell toxicity and increasing longevity.
