CR for elderly 80+


Recommended Posts

I'm 80+ and I've been on Calorie Restriction for over 20 years.

BUT, it's probably not good to START CR when you're 80+  --  or even 70+.  The process that the body must go through to go from Ad Lib to CR should be slow and gradual.  And the older you are when you start, the worse.

Thank you, Saul, for your reply. Knowing my parents, they'll probably want to push through anyway. Could you perhaps point me towards some scientific literature to back up my argumentation? 

Kind regards, 


Hi Geoff, 

See this entire threat for a discussion of the scientific evidence for risks associated with starting (and maybe continuing) CR in one's elder years:
