There’s so much interest in unlocking the KEY to healthier aging.
And much of what we see is bogus—like youth serums and fad diets that can “rewind time.”
But what I’m about to share with you today could be a total game changer…
Because in a first-of-its-kind study in humans, researchers found a simple way we can SLOW the pace of biological aging.
And it all relates back to our evolutionary roots…
Extend your life
In a new study, researchers found that reducing daily caloric intake by 25 percent can slow the aging process by two to three percent.
Now, I know what you’re thinking…
First, is “calorie restriction” actually sustainable in your golden years?
And second, that seems like a LOT of food to give up for little reward…
Well, let’s start with the latter. Because that one to two percent reduction? It translates to a 10 to 15 percent reduced risk of dying, compared to those who continued eating normally.
I don’t know about you, but I will certainly take that!
And the whole calorie restriction-thing? I think it may be easier—and healthier—than you suspect.
Let me explain…
Honor your body’s evolutionary roots
I have written many times about the benefits of intermittent fasting (IF).
It’s an eating approach that honors our evolutionary roots. And it’s actually a form of calorie restriction.
Now, there are different approaches to IF…
Time restricted eating (TRE) is when you limit your daily meals to specific eating windows, like between noon and 6 p.m. Alternate day fasting (ADF) is when you fast every other day. And the 5:2 approach is when any two days in a single week are fasting days.
Well, I’m sure you can already see how TRE, especially, may be a simple way to cut 25 percent of your daily food intake, without even thinking about it.
But if fasting really isn’t your thing, there are other ways to think about this, too. Here are a few examples:
- Remove one item from your plate
- Don’t prepare (or order) an appetizer
- Eat 75 percent of a sandwich
No matter the approach, you may feel a bit hungry at first. But after a while, we get used to less food in our tummies.
In fact, I explain why fasting is a natural state—and how you can overcome those initial feelings of hunger—in the July 2021 issue of my monthly Logical Health Alternatives newsletter (“Unleash the power of your body’s natural rhythms and watch your health soar”).

At the end of the day, to me, this study simply reinforced what we have known in preliminary studies for quite some time now… that it may be possible to slow the pace of biological aging with a behavioral intention.
And isn’t that what I’m always talking to you about anyway? Lifestyle interventions we can all make to help us become the best, healthiest versions of ourselves.
