Diet, Calories, and Stress?

My question is about diet and its implications on the aging process. On TV sometimes you see people who have lived to an advanced age and often only eat a few hundred calories per day, which of course means they eat no animal products.
Do you think there is any real science behind this or are these only lucky people? Maybe their low fat and low cholesterol diets are more important than actually eating so few calories?
Also how do things like stress and coping effect the aging process? I've heard a little about the stress hormone being really bad for the body and that many things in modern life cause it to be too high.
What are some good stress reducing methods or products that you would recommend to help lower the stress hormone and keep it low?
