Restricting Eating To Early In The Day Has Significant Metabolic Benefits

November 10, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
A U.S. study that followed eleven overweight men and women over four days of eating the same number of calories, but only between 8 am and 2 pm, found some significant benefits. Eating earlier in the day followed by 18 hours of fasting resulted in reduced daily hunger swings and increased fat burning during several hours at night. It also improved metabolic flexibility, which is the body's ability to switch between burning carbs and fats. The researchers said more research on early-time restricted feeding in humans is needed to create a more complete picture of whether it can help prevent and treat obesity.
