Multipage article in today's NYT Science section on the benefits of calorie deprivation. Particularly interesting comparison of two monkeys with different diets.

They have a picture of a guy who's been following the calorie deprivation approach for 6 years. He's 6' tall and 130lbs. I hate to say it but if I had to look like that and be so frail, I don't think it would be worth it. He looks like he has a terminal illness.

Also another article which repeats the finding that two drinks per day have a substantial benefit in reducing heart risk in healthy, highly active males (something like a 50% reduction if I recall).

Maybe Owen would have done better with 885 calories of real monkey food instead of pellets and an apple. Even though Canto is trim, he still is not a happy monkey, maybe its the plexiglass, or he is just hungry all the time.

What he is saving on food, he is spending on getting his shirts tailored.
