Advice for getting involved in chrononutrition research

Hi Sigma Team, I was wondering if you had any recommendations for anyone wanting to get involved in chrononutrition research. As this is an evolving area, there aren't always 'direct' education paths (e.g. Masters Programs) available everywhere. As people who have conducted research and are more familiar with this area of research, do any of you have qualification or specific program recommendations you'd suggest people strive for in order to help get their foot in the door for opportunities in this area. Much thanks, Mel

Is there hope for obesity rates to come down?

Hi guys, I'm really keen to hear your thoughts on something that's been on my mind for a while- do you feel that there is hope (or an effective way forward) for obesity rates to come down? Based on your response, why/why not?

Courses for young researchers

Hi, first of all, I want to thank you so much for the whole podcast, which I'm really looking forward to. I have one question for you. I'm starting a PhD in the fall concerning the pathophysiology of metabolic diseases and I'd like to take some courses that would help me in my research. Since you are in contact with a lot of specialists from different institutions, you probably have more insight than I do into what the possibilities are. Would you have any recommendations or an overview of courses related to metabolic diseases or even methodology and statistics that could help a beginner scientist? Thank you very much Kate

Looking back - What have you changed your mind on?

In this field, it seems like so many of us have had positions we've held very seriously that we now see as poorly supported by research, or just have a significant paradigm change (eg low-carb for Alan, Keto vibes for yourself Danny and many of us). Listening to some of the quack asylum episodes, I realized that while you might not have ever considered them as references, they almost by default were connected to some degree to our spheres of influence in the past (colleagues of colleagues, references used by colleagues, etc). It has been some time since you've done a "looking back" episode (e.g. It would be great to hear you banter and look back to how your views have evolved over the years, review how you have evolved your thinking about certain pillars of your nutrition epistemology, and more.
