Calorie Restriction is the life extension technique with the most
scientific support. In many experiments done by many different
researchers, it has been shown to extend the average and maximum
lifespan of a wide variety of animals.

When doing calorie restriction, it is important to guard against
malnutrition. A conservative approach to doing this is to eat a
carefully chosen variety of ordinary food, since this is likely to
also include sufficient amounts of as-yet-undiscovered nutrients.
When people do this they generally find that they spend too much time
cooking, so they have to stop.
