Cutting 300 Calories A Day Can Improve Your Metabolic Health

Cutting 300 Calories A Day Can Improve Your Metabolic Health

You don’t have to go on a crash diet to improve your health. Cutting calories out of your daily diet may be enough to improve biomarkers for metabolic syndrome.

Researchers at Duke University conducted a study that showed you can improve your metabolic health by cutting just 300 calories a day from your diet. The small calorie reduction can improve biomarkers for blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol.

The study showed that the participants lost an average of 16 pounds over two years by reducing their daily caloric intake by 300. And the pounds they were losing was mostly fat in the process.

The findings suggested the potential for a substantial advantage for cardiovascular health in young and middle-aged healthy individuals.

The study focused on general caloric restrictions rather than reducing the intake of specific micronutrients such as protein, carbohydrates and fat.

Nutrition experts point out that its more important to focus on what kind of foods you’re eating rather than your overall calories.

Cutting calories will reduce the risk of obesity and diabetes for those at greater risk, but it also may impact individuals who have minimal risk.
