I also can confirm this. I have been a vegetarian for almost two
decades. Although I don't really practice CR, I do eat less calories
than most people. I am over 40 now. I had a cardiologist call me back
this year to "fix" my insurance forms because he thought the birthdate
was wrong. He swore that he thought I was in my early twenties. I
also had a GP recently tell me that my bloodwork numbers were the most
textbook-perfect numbers she has ever seen.
