James Cain Posted October 27, 2015 Report Share Posted October 27, 2015 I listen to the Sigma Nutrition Radio podcast which is interviews and discussions with professionals and researchers in fields related to nutrition, exercise, and health. Almost every episode is very high quality and the interviews are excellent. This week the host interviewed Eric Ravussin, PhD to discuss his work with the CALERIE study and CR in general. http://sigmanutrition.com/episode92/ Episode 92: Dr. Eric Ravussin of the Pennington Biomedical Research Center is on the show to discuss their recent human trials on the effects of caloric restriction on longevity markers, fasting, hormesis and obesity. In this episode we discuss: The CALERIE study conducted at Pennington How does calorie restriction data in rodents carry over to humans? The potential mechanisms behind CR increasing longevity The main biomarkers of longevity The importance of hormesis in human health Can fasting or alternate calorie restriction be just as effective? Is CR potentially detrimental in the context of muscle loss with age and sarcopenic obesity? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
