A new study from the National Institute of Health CALORIE in the United States, specializing in the study of various dietary methods of losing weight and maintaining health, was presented today by a separate team of specialists who tried to prove that a gradual reduction in calories consumed daily can lead to a constant trend of healthy weight loss. In particular, at the center of their new research was the theory that the removal of about 300 calories daily in the diet of already healthy people will help them maintain a significantly greater degree of stability while gradually reducing weight and improving health indicators.
In particular, experts have focused on identifying how a gradual decrease in calorie intake may affect indicators such as blood pressure and tolerance to processed glucose. The experiment involved 218 adults under the age of 50, who already showed quite good results in terms of their weight, intestinal biome and general health.
During the first month, volunteers had to gradually reduce their calorie intake by 25% from the initial figure, and over the next two to three months by another 10%. During the study, it turned out that even reaching a minimum threshold of 25% – which equals about 300 calories per day – allows you to significantly stabilize blood pressure, reduce the body's tolerance to sugar and establish some functions associated with the intestinal environment of bacteria. All these positive properties one way or another can be decisive for maintaining health in old age.
But because scientists were able to demonstrate that removing only 300 calories per day is actually able to turn the factor of personal well-being and people's health – even if they do not suffer from any diseases. What is even more interesting is that during such a diet, people can continue to use various food additives and even a small amount of sugar-containing products, but within reasonable limits.
