Abstract: Even the most ascetic dieter occasionally succumbs to cravings for a bacon double cheeseburger or a pint of Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia ice cream. But according to a new study, frequent bingeing helps enhance the life-span-extending effects of a reduced-calorie diet--for Medflies, at least. The findings might help researchers craft a nuanced view of connections between diet and longevity.
