Caloric restriction has been shown to increase the life span. Now there is also evidence that it can improve memory. It is postulated that restricting calories decreases insulin levels and also inflammation, which is thought to be a primary cause of aging.

Researchers from the University of Munster (Germany) studied 50 healthy, normal- to overweight elderly men and women (average age 60 years), dividing them into three groups: one that restricted daily caloric intake by up to 30%; the second that increased unsaturated fatty acids consumption by up to 20%; and a third group that made no dietary changes (control group.) 

 

The team found the calorie-restricted group demonstrated a 20% average increase in verbal memory scores after 3 months.  As well, the researchers observed that the memory improvements in the calorie-restricted group correlated with decreases in insulin levels and markers of inflammation, including high sensitive C-reactive protein (CRP). 

Previous studies involving lab animal models have suggested that caloric restriction may extend lifespan.  While it is premature to recommend a restricted calorie diet across the board, it is important to manage caloric intake judiciously.  Try to avoid consuming far more calories than you expend in a day: doing so will not only help to offset weight gain, it just might give your memory a boost.
