Eating is the ingestion of food, to provide energy and allow for growth. It is an activity of daily living. Many individuals limit their amount of nutritional intake. However, it may be a result of lifestyle choice, due to famine or hunger, as part of a diet or as religious fasting. Kristin Kirkpatrick, Today.com, reflects on time-restricted eating:
“Many people follow a pattern of constant eating throughout the day, forcing the body to continually pump out insulin, and metabolize a steady stream of food. It turns out, it’s not just what we are eating that makes a difference in our health, but rather when we are eating.
A small pilot study published Wednesday in the Journal of Nutritional Science shows that a time-restricted feeding approach helps reduce body fat, without counting calories.

The 10-week study by British researchers split healthy individuals into two groups — those who consumed breakfast 90 minutes later and dinner 90 minutes earlier — and those who followed their normal eating routine. Both groups kept food diaries and gave blood samples during the 10 weeks.
There were no restrictions on what the two groups could eat.
At the end of the intervention period, participants in the time-restricted feeding group, who reduced their eating times by 4 ½ hours, had lost body fat, reduced total caloric intake, and had modest improvements in metabolic risk factors like LDL cholesterol. In a 10-week period, the time-restricted eating schedule accomplished what many popular diets cannot — fat loss.
What is time-restricted feeding?
It's not even about changing what you eat, but shortening the window of total eating throughout the day. Many of the patients I work with adhere to a time-restricted eating pattern by stopping eating by 6:00 pm, or focusing on having dinner early, and omitting calories later in the evening. Participants in the University of Surrey study had a hard time sticking to the restrictive timing of their meals, although 43 percent said they would consider continuing the program if eating times were more flexible.”
