By my sixth day following the calorie restriction with optimum nutrition plan, a way of eating-or not eating-in order to live to the horrifying-to-contemplate age of 120, I found myself having hostile conversations about chocolate with a dead man. The man was Dr. Roy Walford, a UCLA pathologist who is largely responsible for creating the modern science of life extension through food reduction. In his experiments, he found that laboratory mice fed about half of a normal diet lived about twice as long as their better-fed counterparts-the mousy equivalent of about 160 human years...

Two weeks into the diet I had lost three pounds and weighed 122, my lowest weight in more than a decade. Unfortunately, it appeared that all three pounds came off the lower half of my face, giving me a Shar-Pei look. Looking alarming is a hazard for the extreme CRON follower-the skin of Lisa Walford's face seems to ripple over her bones.

That's Lisa Walford pictured there. She's Dr. Roy's daughter and has followed in his skeletonsteps, eating only 1,300 calories (approx. 1 Tyra Banks coffee break) per day for the last 15 years. And to make up for all that pigging out, she fasts one day per week. If calorie restriction makes you look like Jack Bauer's dad by the time you're 50, why would you want to live to be 51, let alone 120?

Walford says that rejecting all human pleasure gives her extra energy, which you can hear in her laugh.
