Hunger, not exercise, may extend life.

I saw something like this a while ago. The feeling of hunger may trigger a extending life gene. Wish I could find the article.

So we should develop a pill that suppresses (the feeling of) hunger so we can eat less, be happy, and live longer. Traditional hunger-suppressors like amphetamine are too harmful to take chronically.

I think you've missed the point Rick. Feeling hunger could be viewed as a postive sensation.

No, I got it. But it's not been established whether it's the reduced calories or the feeling of hunger that's beneficial. If the former, then a drug will help us tolerate the reduced calories. If the latter, then we must suffer to live longer.

No, I will never learn to "enjoy" hunger!

It may be a paltry addition, but eating food shunts blood away from the brain and other parts of the body for digestion. The shifts in blood supply may be a factor in the damage that eating would have. It seems to be a recurring rule that rapid changes cause damage to the body. Insulin, likewise, is an aging hormone. Spikes aren't really very healthy for us.

Anyway, I'm not convinced it's necessarily the feeling of hunger that causes us to live longer. Hunger makes people irritable, stressed, angry... That, I imagine, would be detrimental. However, a low calorie diet is something one can adapt to. Hunger occurs more often because you're eating less than normal than because you aren't eating a large quantity of food. Hence why obese people tend to feel hunger constantly, while thinner people feel it relatively rarely.

Keeping busy helps. Eating reduced quantities more often may be a good way to moderate the spikes and reduce hunger.

Eating less may also effect glucose levels in such a way that is beneficial to the aging brain.

Trouble is, sometimes I enjoy a good old fashioned sugar rush!

A good diet plan along with regular exercise can maintain the health and also extend the life.
I don't think a person can live longer and healthy without the regular exercise.
So exercise is must for the healthy and long life.
