Cutting calories can delay the signs of ageing, according to Dr Rozalyn Anderson, from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She said: “One of the things people sometimes miss is the amazing fact that ageing can be altered.
“Calorie restriction research proves this.”
Dr Anderson said a recent study showed eating 25 per cent fewer calories a day could be the key to warding off the ravages of time. That equates to women slashing 500 calories a day – sticking to a total of 1,500 rather than the recommended 2,000. And for blokes that means only eating 1,875 calories a day, rather than the 2,500 men are advised to stick to.
