Eat With Gusto or Cut Calories and Live Longer?
Science magazine has just published a study by University of Wisconsin Professor Richard Weindruch which shows that monkeys who ate a third less calories live longer than their pals who ate like it was their last days on earth. Who hasn't struggled with weight issues? I've gained and lost hundreds of pounds in my lifetime and my heart isn't happy about that. However, it's an intriguing question: Do you prefer to be overweight and eat what you like or count calories and live longer? Despite my love for food, I want to live longer BUT with a good quality of life. I guess I'll be forced to give up Snaps.
