Counting Calories big

.

It is your body and if you want to look better in those jeans, do it.

If you want to compete because it pushes you to levels of discipline that create better character, then do it.

.

Most of the time fitness enthusiasts cut a few calories to get ready for a show, to fit better in clothes, or get ready for the beach trip. Then, you get other people telling you that you should not focus on what your body looks or feels like. And now, cutting a few calories is also a way to LIVE LONGER. The latest research shows that skimming a few calories can help you live even longer.

.

The latest study on this longevity stuff was reported in the journal Cell Metabolism back on March 22, 2018. Using big, fancy words, they said they, “Found that calorie restriction decreased systemic oxidative stress, which has been tied to age-related neurological conditions such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, as well as cancer, diabetes, and others.”

.

"Restricting calories can slow your basal metabolism, and if by-products of metabolism accelerate aging processes, calorie restriction sustained over several years may help to decrease risk for chronic disease and prolong life," says lead author Leanne M. Redman, associate professor of Clinical Sciences at Pennington Biomedical Research in Baton Rouge, LA.

The article published on Science Daily wrote, “CALERIE (Comprehensive Assessment of the Long-Term Effects of Reducing Intake of Energy) was the first randomized controlled trial to test the metabolic effects of calorie restriction in non-obese humans. The second phase of the study reports results from 53 healthy, non-obese men and women between ages 21 and 50 who cut calories by 15% over 2 years and underwent additional measurements for metabolism and oxidative stress. The calorie reductions were calculated individually through the ratio of isotopes absorbed by the participants’ molecules and tissues over 2 weeks, a technique that accurately pinpoints a weight-maintenance calorie level.

.

The really neat part about this is that the study used healthy people. Most health-related studies follow ailing people trying new things and seeing if the changes help. But no, this particular study followed healthy people who only got healthier by cutting calories.

.

“Those in the calorie restriction group lost an average of almost 9 kg, although they did not follow a particular diet and weight loss was not the study’s goal. No adverse effects, such as anemia, excessive bone loss, or menstrual disorders were noted; in fact, both trials led to improvements in mood and health-related quality of life. ‘We found that even people who are already healthy and lean may benefit from a calorie restriction regimen,’ Redman says.”

.

"The CALERIE trial rejuvenates support for two of the longest-standing theories of human aging: the slow metabolism 'rate of living' theory and the oxidative damage theory," Redman says. The latter ties overproduction of free radicals to oxidative damage to lipids, proteins, and DNA, leading to chronic diseases such as atherosclerosis, cancer, diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis.

The FDA suggests the average calorie count is around 2,000 to 2,200 based on what the government says based on the average daily intake of most Americans. Take 15% off that and you are in the 1,800's where research showed the healthiest longest living people had their caloric intake at based on blue zones research.

.

What’s a blue zone, you ask? They are locations where people live to age 100 with ease. Check out the full rundown on Dan Buettner’s site HERE.

.

What you can take from both the study and blue zones is that it’s not just cutting calories that make a big difference. The type of calories matter big time. And the lesson: always know your caloric intake and keep it down a bit when not trying to bulk up.

.

While reducing your calorie intake is healthy, it doesn’t mean going even lower is even healthier. In fact, not eating enough is just as unhealthy as overeating. Taking a balanced approached to what you eat and how much will produce the greatest rewards of optimal health, maximum longevity, and quality years.

BCAAs and Glutamine have research showing they help the body keep and build muscle, especially while on a lower-calorie program. So, whether you’re getting summer ready or wanting to live longer, said two supplements can help.

.

And remember: GIB carries both of these in vegan, fermented form. You can get the safest, purest, and most potent forms of BCAAs and Glutamine at the best possible price through Gains in Bulk.
