  • Huberman Lab Podcast # 41: On Fasting and Time Restricted Eating (TRE)

    I was wondering if anybody here has listened to Andrew Huberman's podcast on fasting and time restricted eating. Here's a link to it:

    If you have listened to it, did you agree/disagree with the points he was making?

    This is the main review he uses as evidence to argue a lot of the points of the podcast:

    I know that barbell medicine has written on fasting before:

    I am still skeptical of all of the benefits that were proposed in the podcast. In my reading, it seems like intermittent fasting and time restricted eating do not have enough human randomized control trials to support the conclusions that he is making. The review Andrew Huberman cites admits, "More rigorous human studies are needed to assess the efficacy, mechanism, and sustainability of TRE in a wide range of populations and diseases."

    I also read this review and it takes a more measured approach to fasting, time restricted eating

    I have listened to a few episodes of the podcast. Huberman is a great host and makes it all really interesting. But after while it feels like information overload and I am not critically thinking about everything that I am listening to.
