"Restricting your eating between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. [like subjects in my latest study] is difficult," she admitted. "But no one dropped out because it was too extreme. The biggest challenge people encountered was eating so much food in such a short period of time. People felt so stuffed!"
When I came across new research involving time-restricted eating, a weight loss approach that involves eating for fewer hours per day as opposed to eating less, I was intrigued by findings. They suggest you can make your body burn more fat and shed pounds without reducing the amount of food you eat.
