Calorie restriction as a method of extending lifespan in animals has been known or a long time, maybe 80 years or so, but the concept goes back much further. Luigi Cornaro (1464-1566) sought the advice of physicians when he was in his 30s (placing the time at about 1500) when he was so sick that he felt he was going to die; Cornaro may have been diabetic. One of the doctors advised him to cut back his food intake radically, which he did, eating only one meal a day, including half a bottle of wine. Cornaro returned to health, lived to over 100 years of age, and wrote about his experiences in his book, On the Temperate Life.
Since one of the physicians knew that cutting food meant better health, that knowledge must have been around long before Cornaro's time and passed down among physicians.
