Reduced consumption of high-calorie food was in many ways very useful for a person. According to the group of experts from several American universities, this kind of malnutrition improves mood, and promotes a healthy sleep and better sex life.
Conducted by experts in the study involved 220 men and women aged 20 to 50 years. Some of the volunteers had normal weight, while in others there was excessive body weight (but not obese). Some of the volunteers suggested that about 25 percent to reduce daily calorie intake, while others asked for the study not to alter their usual diet. The first group consisted of 145 people, and the second, control 75. People who ought to reduce the consumption of high-calorie foods, helped professional nutritionists, while a control group was left to fend for themselves in the selection of products.
Not too surprising that some people, lowering the consumption of high-calorie food, lost weight — an average of two years, during which the experiment lasted, they lost weight approximately 7.6 kg. However, according to scientists, this is far from the only one recorded them beneficial change. New diet has a positive impact on sexual attraction and the mood of the representatives of the first group, and the quality of their sleep improved, while some members of the control group,by contrast, began to sleep is worse.
It is curious that in approaching the study, scientists admit that the result will be the opposite — it was assumed that malnutrition can adversely affect the person’s mood, reduce libido and affect the duration and quality of sleep.
