:There is scientific evidence that a calorically restricted diet can increase longevity in the species in which it has been investigated (humans, rodents, and probably other species of domestic animals).
:Does that mean it applies to snakes? No, of course not.
:But it doesn't make it untrue in snakes. I don't know of any specific data for snakes, but I tend to err on the side of caution. If it is true for some vertebrates, it may be true in others.
Define Power Feeding, as I said, no two people define it the same. When is a snake over weight? Everyone has different opinions on that also. My point is there are no set guide lines on either of these subjects and there have been no studies done on snakes to determine what is healthy for them. It's all opinion and what works for you. Of coarse this is all my opinion and worth nothing in the final analysis.
