Learning to Eat, between Meals (LEM)

A man who is rich in his adolescence is almost doomed to be a dilettante at table. This is not because all millionaires are stupid but because they are not impelled to experiment. In learning to eat, as in psychoanalysis, the customer, in order to profit, must be sensible of the cost.

The cost is before eating and aftermath (if any),too.

Eat wisely, eat less. Eat foolishly, eat more.
Eat healthily, eat just. Eat bluntly, eat fats.

Eat Less actually has a scientific name : calorie restriction.

In scientific literature, calorie restriction has been shown to increase life span, slow the progression of atherosclerosis, prevent tumor growth, reduce the amount of brain dysfunction, and retard aging - but all the research has been done with rodents. We are not rats, but human being with wisdom.

If you would like to try calorie restriction, aim to gradually cut down your food intake by 25 percent. That means eating only three-quarters of what you usually eat.
