Trying to lose weight? Tried different diets and different workouts? Changing your eating schedule may help unveil a new study.
According to the latest study, tweaking your meal timings such as having an early dinner or even skipping it can definitely help reduce hunger twinge and promote fat burning.
Courtney Peterson, an associate professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham in the US, said that during the research they found that in comparison to eating between 8 am and 8 pm, enjoying your meal between 8 am and 2 pm followed by an 18-hour daily fast retained appetite levels more even throughout the day.
This eating timing strategy may help reduce weight by reducing swings in hunger and altering fat and carbohydrate burning patterns.
The research suggests that eating a very early dinner or even skipping it could help you shed a pound or two. According to previous animal studies, eTRF helps rodents burn more fat. The human body has internal clock of its own, and researchers say that many metabolism aspects are at their optimal functioning in the morning.
Therefore, following the proper order of eating timing with the body’s circadian clock and eating earlier in the day may positively affect health. The first test of eTRF found that it reduced body fat and decreased the risk of chronic diseases in rodents.
The researchers noted that the findings are still in the initial stage but they could be a major mediation in the field of diet and nutrition. Further, a deep study is necessary to find if the diet is sustainable in the long run.
