Interview with Dr. Ethan Weiss on Time-Restricted Eating
Listen now
In this episode, we speak with Dr. Ethan Weiss. Dr. Weiss is a cardiologist at UCSF and recently made headlines for a large intermittent fasting study that he was involved in called the 'TREAT Study.' The study was unique in terms of the number of participants, duration, and number of biomarkers examined in a TRF (time-restricted feeding) vs. non-TRF study. Dr. Weiss' hypothesis was that the TRF group would see better results than the non-TRF group over the 12-week study. He talks about how he believed this due to his background in using TRF for himself to lose weight and when the results came out that TRF was NOT superior in the TREAT study, he was surprised. In fact, the study suggested there may have been some negatives with the TRF group that has made Dr. Weiss re-think his position with regard to TRF. We talk about the results of the study, the limitations, and his interpretation of the data. We also discuss how the media has taken some of the results completely out of context. If you've been curious about TRF, this is an episode that will be sure to pique your curiosity.    You can find Dr. Weiss on Twitter @ethanjweiss   Get our new nutrition coaching app, Carbon Diet Coach, for iOS and android to get custom nutrition coaching for less than $10/month: Get our books on how to lose fat: Take my online course "The Science of Nutrition": Get custom workouts by us for $12.99/month:   Find Layne and Holly on Instagram @biolayne and @hollytbaxter   ---- Post-production by Jim McDonald (@thejimmcd) and David Margittai ( © 2021, Biolayne LLC.
