BarryR Posted October 22, 2016 Report Share Posted October 22, 2016 I am currently running 3 miles per day, 5 or 6 days a week. I was just reading through an older version of Dr. Walford's "The 120 Year Diet". He suggests that 15 miles per week, is the ideal amount of running, with the goal of max longevity. He also mentions an experiment with 4 groups of mice. Group1 - fed ad-lib, no exercise. Group2 - fed ad-lib, exercised. Group3 - cal restricted, no exercise. Group4 - cal restricted, exercised. Group2 outlived Group1. Group3 and Group4 both outlived Group2. BUT Group3 (no exer) outlived Group4 (exer). I am already following a 1600-cal/day vegan starch-based diet, eating one meal a day. I am 5'11", 130 lbs. I am thinking about reducing my miles per week from 15-18 to around 10-12. Any thoughts? Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
