LATE BREAKFAST, EARLY DINNER MAY AID WEIGHT LOSS
Changing the time you eat your meals could be key to reducing body fat, a new report claims. According to a 10-week study into “time-restricted feeding” led can have a signiicant impact on body composition.
Participants were not required to follow a particular diet and could eat whatever they wanted, so long as it was within a speciic window. Researchers split participants into two groups: a control group who ate their meals as they normally would and another group who were required to eat their breakfast 90 minutes later than normal while also eating their dinner 90 minutes earlier. The results showed that those who stuck to eating within a speciic window lost more than twice as much body fat than the control group. The questionnaire also revealed that 57 per cent of participants in the study group noticed a reduction in their food consumption, either due to decreased appetite or reduced snacking as a result of the restrictive time period in which they were allowed to eat.
