Time-Restricted Eating = Weight Loss

There is increasing evidence that time-restricted eating (TRE) can be one effective strategy in weight loss. What if someone simply limited the hours in the day in which they consumed food, reducing it from 15 hours per day to 8? Could suggesting that a patient only eat between the hours of 9 AM and 5 PM, rather than the timeworn advice to simply eat less, be effective? A small randomized clinical trial of 21 overweight, nondiabetic adults examined the effect of TRE on body composition and glycemic measures. The TRE group—whose goal was an 8-hour eating window but whose average window was actually 10.4 hours—saw statistically significant reductions in weight (though this meant losses in both lean and fat mass), fasting glucose, visceral fat, and fasting triglyceride levels. Granted, it’s a very small study, but it adds to increasing evidence that narrowing the daily window for eating can result in weight loss as well as improvements in multiple health indicators, including insulin resistance and cardiovascular disease.
