Benefits from calorie restriction while maintaining decent protein intake. I wonder if they would get the same benefits from IF (intermittent fasting)?
Effect of fast dietary proteins on muscle protein synthesis rate and muscle strength in ad libitum-fed and energy-restricted old rats.
So it would be intersting to know the extent of the energy restriction. And how much protein........... I don't have access to the full article.
Aileen and Chris,
Here's a full of pretty much the same thing by same authors:
Note that the calories they restrict in the ER group are sucrose & cornstarch, which is interesting. What if the fat was removed instead? What if we let the rats eat ad libitum and give them the same chow as the ER group?
