Calorie restriction with Optimal Nutrition (CRON), also known as “caloric restriction” or “dietary restriction,” is the only dietary intervention, shown to extend life, while protecting against disease. Sure, everyone would like to live longer and better, but the question is how to make calorie restriction a happy lifestyle that people can enjoy.
That very question is why we created The CR Way, a holistic approach to calorie restriction that concentrates on increasing happiness and well-being; offers delicious, healthful recipes; and provides guidance and supportive camaraderie through teleconferences, forums, meetings and workshops.
Confusion about calorie restriction is rampant. To clear up some of it, we created this slide show: Calorie Restriction for a Longer, Better Life to dispel some of the myths that have been perpetuated about “calorie restriction.” The real way to think about it is “calorie liberation,” that is, liberation from the idea that eating lots of calories makes you happier or healthier.
Wishing you extraordinary health and a long, happy life,
