Like calorie restriction but easier: intermittent fasting

June 29th, 2010 by peterson@foresight.org

Patri Friedman will be speaking at our Life Extension Conference on the health and longevity benefits of intermittent fasting— like calorie restriction but easier!  Patri writes:

I believe that Intermittent Fasting, which is the practice of going 16-36 hours with reduced or zero calories, has substantial health benefits. It activates the SIRT genes, which improve health and extend lifespan, to get the benefits of calorie restriction without requiring actual long-term calorie restriction.
