It’s not just what you eat, but when you eat it that counts. In­trigued? Us too...

CCan you change your body with­out over­haul­ing your diet? Emerg­ing re­search sug­gests one sim­ple tweak could help. Buzz is build­ing around a brand-new acro­nym: time-re­stricted feed­ing (TRF). Ba­si­cally, an in­ter­mit­tent fast­ing diet that re­stricts your eat­ing pe­riod to be­tween eight and 12 hours a day. The clock starts with your first sip of cof­fee and ends with your last bite of din­ner. So what’s the deal? “When we eat a meal, we process most of it over the next three hours. For many, a lot of their day is spent in this pe­riod, when mul­ti­ple meals and snacks are con­sumed,” ex­plains Dr Eve­lyn Parr of the Mary Mackil­lop In­sti­tute for Health Re­search at the Aus­tralian Catholic Uni­ver­sity. “If some­one eats un­til 10pm and then has break­fast at 7am, they don’t have a long overnight fast­ing pe­riod. From ro­dent re­search, the length of that pe­riod could be im­por­tant in im­prov­ing me­tab­o­lism.”
