Everyone needs a definite amount of calories in a body to maintain the functions and weight. Calories in food called kilo-calories that means a soda containing 150 calories of food actually has 150,000 calories. When you exercise you burn 100 calories it is actually 100 kilo-calories.
According to new studies it was found that reduction of calorie intake in our daily life is helpful to live longer by 25 percent or more. Researchers from the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis found that significantly limiting calories lowers core body temperature.
The study published recently in the journal Aging, observed that core body temperatures of 24 people in their mid-50s have skillful calorie restriction for at least six years to 24 of their peers. They take higher calorie and fat of a standard western diet at slightest six years.
Dr. Luigi Fontana principal investigator at Washington University expressed his views in a news release saying: “The people doing calorie restriction had a lower average core body temperature by about 0.2 degrees Celsius, which sounds like a modest reduction but is statistically significant and similar to the reduction we have observed in long-lived, calorie-restricted mice. What is interesting about that is an endurance athlete, who is the same age and are equally lean; don’t have similar reduction in body temperature.”
For a healthy life plan the researchers admitted that it is not confirmed how much calorie restriction may be supportive for the survival of life of human being. Even though it may be double or triple in the natural life of simple organisms. According to the studies authors they believed that people who follow the strict diet plan they look forward to survive past 100 years.
