I listened to an interview with a lady who lived in the Biosphere II. She talked about the diet, and the dude who did all of the research into reduced-calorie diets handled their nutrition. He had found that if you gave animals complete nutrition, but gave them REALLY reduced caloric intakes, they lived a LOT longer.
So that's how they ate in the biosphere, partly for health, partly because they were running out of food. And she said that every one of them were just surly, mean, angry, and bitchy 24 hours a day because of it...
