Eat less to live longer

Smooth foods are all I can eat while I sustain six months of dental reconstruction.

My calorie intake has halved since the oral horror began three months ago and I now look like a stick insect in a baggy dress.

My misery was broad and deep and boundless until yesterday when I read about caloric restriction with adequate nutrition (CRAN). It’s not about starvation and it’s not about anorexia — it’s about resisting the urge to eat ad libitum.  And it turns out that resisting this urge could add decades to our lives.

The choice is stark and I suspect most of us will find it about as appetising as a deep-fried sea cucumber with hollandaise sauce.
