10-hour eating window may be key to health
Eating within a daily 10-hour window could be an effective weight-loss strategy and help ward off diseases such as diabetes, scientists have suggested.
Time-restricted eating, a form of intermittent fasting, led to weight loss, more energy and improved sleep quality in participants of a small study.
Intermittent fasting is a popular diet trend, of which one of the most well-known forms is the 5:2 diet, where people eat normally for five days and fast for two.
The group also saw improvements in symptoms of metabolic syndrome, which include high blood pressure and abdominal obesity.
