赵金香宗师之中华医疗养生问答 Q & A on Healthy Living by Grandmaster Zhao Jin-Xiang (No. 20)



What is the universally accepted method for longevity?

The universally accepted method for longevity is “low calorie diet”. This in actual fact means eat till you are about 70 to 80% full. There was an experiment made by American scientists: 100 monkeys were allowed to eat freely. The other 100 monkeys were allowed to eat till 70 to 80% full with predefined quantity and time. 10 years later, half of the 100 monkeys that were allowed to eat freely died. The remaining fifty were unhealthy. They suffered from high fat content, coronary heart disease, high blood pressure. For the other group of 100 monkeys that were allowed to eat till you are about 70 to 80% full, only 12 died. The remainders are in good shape, healthy, alert and active and seldom fell sick. They are still around for further observation. There is a traditional saying in Chinese medical theory: “If you want your body well, go for 30% hunger and cold.” A famous American health specialist who gave lecture in China said in his concluding remarks: “First, eat till you are 70 to 80% full. Second, walk slowly when you go upstairs”. This way, diabetes, coronary heart disease and high blood pressure can be prevented.
