Now we know that caloric restriction is seemingly the best proven method for extending healthy lifespan, losing weight and improving health.
We also know that it sucks to have to diet for beach season, let alone our whole lives.
Luckily scientists have reverse-engineered the effects of caloric restriction and found another diet protocol which is just as, if not more effective: intermittent fasting.

But although they produce a lot of useful information, there are many reasons to use active time tracking apps instead.
