Dr Panda is once again featured on the Huberman Lab which is currently the top health podcast in worldwide charts! Congratulations to Andrew Huberman and the team for such an achievement.
In this episode, Andrew Huberman invited Satchin Panda, PhD, professor and the director of the Regulatory Biology Laboratories at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. We discuss his lab’s discovery that “time-restricted eating” (TRE) aka intermittent fasting, is beneficial effects for metabolic health and longevity.
Dr. Panda explains how TRE, and also longer fasts, can positively impact obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular health, age-related chronic diseases, and improve mood and cognitive performance. He also describes how the timing of eating, light exposure and exercise that ~50% of all people engage in, negatively impacts their health and explains how specific simple adjustments to these can positively shift their subjective feelings of health and biomarkers of cardiovascular function, glucose regulation and metabolism. We discuss how our circadian behaviors, which include our patterns of eating, sleeping and socializing, have an enormous impact on our biology, mood and health and how by simply confining our calorie consumption to a semi-regular daily window, can positively impact our physical health, mental health and longevity.
Back in 2021, Dr Huberman highlighted works from the Panda Lab. This time around a full-on circadian feast for us all. Huge thanks to Dr Huberman and the team for all they are doing to support world class research!
