Caloric Restriction vs. Plant-Based Diets |
To do this, the researchers recruited vegans from the St. Louis Vegetarian Society, and went to the Calorie Restriction Society to find folks practicing severe caloric restriction. What did they find?

Only the vegan group got a significant drop in IGF-1. These findings demonstrate that, unlike in rodents, long-term severe caloric restriction in humans does not reduce the level of this cancer-promoting hormone. It’s not how many calories we eat, but the protein intake that may be the key determinant of circulating IGF-1 levels in humans, and so reduced protein intake may become an important component of anti-cancer and anti-aging dietary interventions.

Old before your time? People age at wildly different rates, study confirms | Science | The Guardian
“Already, before midlife, individuals who were ageing more rapidly were less physically able, showed cognitive decline and brain ageing, self-reported worse health, and looked older,” the scientists write. // &! ie one evidence, whole plant food diet (vegan, no processed foods) mimics caloric restriction, thus lowers speed/progress of aging processes. and animal protein does increase it, as well as processed fast and junk food (mix of fats, sugars, processed carbs without fiber) which hits the insulin pump hard. and evidence has shown that pancreas has limited amount of cells to produce insulin - once they gone, age related diabetes is here; // &! PREMATURE AGING does add substantially to rising health care cost to the already established demographic bubble factor.

Herzinfarkte und Schlaganfälle: OECD-Studie zu Herz-Kreislauf-Erkrankungen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
In Deutschland sterben immer weniger Menschen an Schlaganfällen, Herzinfarkten und anderen Herz-Kreislauf-Erkrankungen. Eine OECD-Studie warnt aber, dass der Anstieg von Fettleibigkeit und Diabetes diese positive Entwicklung stoppen könnte. // SICK POPULATION: Thanks to advances in modern medicine, we are living longer lives, but we’re doing it by lengthening the morbidity phase. In other words, we live longer, but sicker, lives. So, traditional medicine increases the number of old people in bad health. Ideally, though, we’d extend lifespan by slowing aging to delay the onset of deterioration, rather than extending the period of deterioration. - &!

BBC News - The power of intermittent fasting
The IGF-1 hormone (insulin-like growth factor) is one of the drivers which keep our bodies in go-go mode, with cells driven to reproduce. This is fine when you are growing, but not so good later in life.

There is now evidence suggesting that IGF-1 levels can be lowered by what you eat. Studies on calorie restrictors suggest that eating less helps, but it is not enough

As well as cutting calories you have to cut your protein intake. Not entirely - that would be a very bad idea. It's about sticking to recommended guidelines, something most of us fail to do [as does the typical western diet].


Current medical opinion is that the benefits of fasting are unproven and until there are more human studies it's better to eat at least 2000 calories a day.

[ Luckily ... a Vegan Diet does imitate fasting: ]
