AMA #2: Improve Sleep, Reduce Sugar Cravings, Optimal Protein Intake, Stretching Frequency & More


Huberman Lab

Welcome to a preview of the second Ask Me Anything (AMA) episode, part of the Huberman Lab Premium subscription.

The Huberman Lab Premium subscription was launched for two main reasons. First, it was launched in order to raise support for the standard Huberman Lab podcast channel — which will continue to come out every Monday at zero-cost. Second, it was launched as a means to raise funds for important scientific research. A significant portion of proceeds from the Huberman Lab Premium subscription will fund human research (not animal models) selected by Dr. Huberman, with a dollar-for-dollar match from the Tiny Foundation.

In the full 1.5 hour AMA episode, we discuss:

  • What is your studying routine?
  • What's the ideal amount of protein intake?
  • Any tips to eliminate sugar cravings?
  • What can we do when we wake up early in the morning before the sun is up and can’t benefit from direct sunlight exposure?
  • Is it better to do shorter bouts of dynamic stretching more frequently throughout the day or longer bouts but multiple times per week?
