    Disappointing study on TRE

    Hope you're right @Todd Allen. I'm not particularly confident in evaluating scientific articles, especially when I know confirmation bias is always a factor.

    Disappointing study on TRE

    A disappointing study just came out on time-restricted eating. I know a number of you have said that TRE is helpful with CR. https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamainternalmedicine/article-abstract/2771095 One of the authors has an explanatory twitter thread here: The disappointing bit is not that it conferred no weight loss advantage, but that it seemed to confer a disadvantage in terms of lean mass loss. Personally, as someone who uses TRE as part of an "appetite control" strategy, I find this disheartening.

    Metformin and appetite

    Your story is music to my ears Mike! I'll stop derailing the metformin thread now, except to say that a safe, effective drug, treatment or medical device to reduce appetite would change so many people's lives. I hope I live to see progress in this area.

    Metformin and appetite

    As someone currently battling against obesity (winning so far, but early days), comments like this mean a lot.

    Nutritionally complete meal?

    I was reading Stephan Guyenet recently, and he seems to reckon that high palatability is a big part of the obesity epidemic. So "little taste left to pleasure" could be an advantage!

    Do you eat back exercise calories?

    Quick question. do you guys tend to eat back exercise calories? Say you're on a CRON diet of 1900 calories, and then you go on a bike ride and a cycling app says you have burned an extra 300 calories. Do you increase your calorie intake for the day, or do you stick to 1900 come rain or shine?

    Good point. Thanks @mccoy.

    Nutritionally complete meal?

    Thanks for the recipe! I'm going to scale it down for lunch and give it a go one of these days! The only thing is I'm not sure if you can get collard greens in the UK (or if so, what we call them here). Are "spring greens" the same thing? (The only downside is a lot of opened barely eaten cans of beans! 😀) You say that, but the other day I couldn't be bothered to cook properly, so I steamed / boiled some spinach, broad beans, asparagus, sugarsnap peas, lentils, and added some walnuts, oats, sunflower seeds and olive oil. I don't know if it was nutritionally complete, as I'm not on chronometer (I'm on MFP, and I'm thinking about making the move but I'm worried about whether cronometer will have everything I need in its database), but I was literally just shooting for "can I steam a bunch of veg I have in the fridge / freezer to get me up to my calorie budget for dinner". And it was genuinely really really nice. I may have odd tastes though 😀

    Nutritionally complete meal?

    Does anyone have any recipes for "nutritionally complete" meals? i.e. a meal that you could eat 3 times a day, 365 days a year, and be optimally healthy in terms of nutrition. A big buddha bowl of randomness is totally acceptable. Ideally, should be: Easy to make High in fibre Low GI Filling Palatable (but doesn't have to taste amazing) Scalable (i.e. easy to just scale the ingredients to make more if you need more or fewer calories) Can be vegan, but doesn't have to be - fish, seafood, eggs or dairy are acceptable Ingredients that I can get from the supermarket, or order from Holland and Barrett. I'm not actually going to eat the same thing every day all year, but I'm looking to simplify my life, and having the option to make a great big batch of something a few days a week and just eat that for the rest of the day would be helpful. Thanks!

    Receptor makes mice strong and slim

    So basically "stopping ageing gives you cancer"?
  11. Interesting article: https://www.uni-bonn.de/news/144-2020

    Is a healthy diet the same for everyone?

    So, the interesting thing from the talk was his claim that they could predict the best diet for you (if I recall, based on DNA and what I'll euphemistically call "microbiome samples"). At least, the best diet as far as blood sugar is concerned.

    Is a healthy diet the same for everyone?

    Interesting TEDx talk that chimes with the "personalized nutrition" issue:

    Is a healthy diet the same for everyone?

    I did read something about fairly recent adaptions to high saturated fats in some Europeans. I'll try to find the reference. (Although I guess KFC is mostly fried in vegetable oil...)

    I guess no? But then a lot of medicine is poisonous, just less harmful than the disease it cures.
