A Research I Really Want To Be True

Someone pointed this research summary to me. It says that if we restrict our food to 20-50% of normal calories on one day and we eat till we are full the next day, we gain a lot of health benefits.

The excerpt:

"Since May 2003 we have experimented with alternate day calorie restriction, one day consuming 20-50% of estimated daily caloric requirement and the next day ad lib eating, and have observed health benefits starting in as little as two weeks, in insulin resistance, asthma, seasonal allergies, infectious diseases of viral, bacterial and fungal origin (viral URI, recurrent bacterial tonsillitis, chronic sinusitis, periodontal disease), autoimmune disorder (rheumatoid arthritis), osteoarthritis, symptoms due to CNS inflammatory lesions (Tourette's, Meniere's) cardiac arrhythmias (PVCs, atrial fibrillation), menopause related hot flashes."

If this is true, I will starve one day and go to a buffet the next day and live longer! I'm sure that after the one starving day, the food at the buffet will taste even better :-D
