Did you know that the lean mass of your organs shrinks with age? Your heart shrinks (.3 grams a year), your brain shrinks (10 to 15% over your life) … your bladder shrinks by half by the time you’re 65 … even your sex organs shrink.1 This is one of the reasons why, if you [...]
When I walked into the office yesterday, a few of my staff members were reading the letter I sent you about my trip to Bali. It caused a stir here, but not the way I was expecting. Let me tell you what happened when I sat down to a meeting with three men from my [...]

Perhaps the oldest anti-aging technique on record is eating less. Wise men have known this for centuries. The thing that has changed is that now modern science has tested this approach, measured its effect and even found out how it works.

- Blood pressure lowers
- Cholesterol levels drop
- Cells divide at a slower rate
- The rate of glycation drops
- Free radical activity drops
- Inflammation lessens
Essentially what is happening is a form of hibernation. You are “living less,” thus adding years to your lifespan. The less food you eat, the less your metabolic system has to work.
