Calorie Restrictions Good for the Heart
Eat less and your heart pumps better. That is what the article by the AP "Study: Low-Calorie Diet Keeps Heart Young" states. A study was done where scientists looked at the heart function of 25 people of the Caloric Restriction Society. Their hearts were functioning at a much younger rate. The recommended caloric intake is anywhere between 1400 to 2000 a day. Of course you should make it healthy calories. Now they can't guarantee that these people are going to live linger, but if your heart if functioning at a rate of 15 years younger chances are you will.
