Funnel plot of the SE by weighted mean difference (WMD) using fixed effect model for assessment of publication bias. The vertical solid line represents the pooled estimate (WMD) and the diagonal dashed lines represent the pseudo 95%CI around the pooled estimate. The vertical dotted line represents the WMD of zero or line of no effect. Each circle represents a study applying caloric restriction and each triangle is a study not applying caloric restriction.
