In the News (from The American Physiological Society): “Mouse Aging Study: It’s Better to Go Hungry than Go Running” A study investigating aging in mice has found that hormonal changes that occur when mice eat significantly less may help explain an already established phenomenon: a low calorie diet can extend the lifespan of rodents, a benefit that even regular exercise does not achieve. Overall, these findings indicate that the physiological stress of exercise did not produce enough damage to tissues or DNA to explain why exercise does not lengthen life span. Instead, the study suggests that caloric restriction creates beneficial changes in the body’s hormone levels which exercise does not.
My Comment: People have observed these facts for a long time, and now they are also explained by science.
In the News (from AFP): “Sleep more to slim down, scientists say” “More sleep could be the ideal way of stabilizing weight or slimming,” said neuro-scientist Karine Spiegel, of France’s INSERM, a public organization dedicated to biological, medical and public health research. Two key hormones produced at night, which help regulate appetite, were at play, she said. Grehlin makes people hungry, slows metabolism and decreases the body’s ability to burn body fat, and leptin, a protein hormone produced by fatty tissue, regulates fat storage.
Conclusion: Eat less and sleep more!
