The 10 hour diet
Could one simple tweak - changing the time you eat - make you feel this good? If so, we want in!
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.”
