  1. Anyone else interested in combining CR with TRF (16:8, 18:6, 20:4?) is more than welcome to message me!

    Fasting for CR Benefits?

    Thanks so much for sharing your extensive expertise, Dean. I've checked out the time restricted eating human studies that you mentioned "...give credence to the finding that eating one's calories outside a relatively narrow window of time during the day (preferable in the morning given the results of time restricted eating studies in humans that are discussed in the paper) is not a very good idea, whether one practices CR or not." The time restricted eating studies were comparing breakfast versus dinner OMAD (Cornelisson, Stote, and Carlson) with OMAD's necessarily consequent high glycemic loads, or looked at subjects with type 2 diabetes (Arnason, Bowen, and Mansell). I believe that the evidence at this point in favor of early versus late time restricted eating per se is preliminary at best. Did I miss something?

    Fasting for CR Benefits?

    This early time restricted feeding (TRF) advice recently gained popularity because it was hypothesized to be in harmony with our circadian rhythm(s), and it was thought to have been supported by the much publicized Sutton et al., (2018) study that randomized men with prediabetes into an early TRF (6 hour feeding period, with dinner before 3 pm) or a control schedule (12 hour feeding period), and later crossed the groups over to the other schedule. The early TRF significantly improved some aspects of cardiometabolic health, even without any weight loss. My criticism of that study is that there were two potentially confounding variables (early versus later eating as well as a 6 versus 12 hour eating window) that differed in the experimental and control groups. The study begs for a follow-up (which I haven't found) comparing only early versus late TRF. Nonetheless, the results are noteworthy.
  4. Hi CR Society Friends! For my first post here, I'd like to ask our community if anyone has come across published research similar to that which is currently being discussed in the "Fasting for CR Benefits?" topic in this forum. That topic, which I highly recommend, is discussing the University of Wisconsin-Madison study on fasting driving the positive effects of a CR diet in mice. So as to not sidetrack that topic, anyone familiar with studies that, for example, have compared time restricted feeding (TRF) windows (16:8 versus 18:6?), particularly in relation to CR, is more than welcome to discuss them here. One study (Sutton et al., 2018) randomized men with prediabetes into an early TRF (6 hour feeding period, with dinner before 3 p.m.) or a control schedule (12 hour feeding period) and later crossed the groups over to the other schedule. The early TRF significantly improved some aspects of cardiometabolic health (even without any weight loss). My criticism of that study is that there were two (potentially confounding) variables (early versus later eating as well as a 6 versus 12 hour feeding window) that differed in the experimental and control groups. The study begs for a follow-up (which I haven't found) comparing only early versus late TRF. Nonetheless, the results are noteworthy. I'd very much appreciate reading anyone's thoughts or knowledge on such topics. Thanks!
