Could Time Restricted Eating help you lose weight, and improve your sleep?
Time Restricted Eating (TRE) is the practice of restricting your eating window to 8 to 12 hours during the day. This video explains the rationale, and some key studies in mice and people which suggest that eating during the day only could not only help with weight control, but has added benefits for sleep, wellbeing and diabetes risk.
More than 50% of adults admit to grazing for more than 15 hours a day, so if there are reliable health benefits to TRE, it could have a huge impact at a population level.
I first came across Time Restricted Eating in the book, The Circadian Code, by Prof Satchin Panda. If you'd like to learn more, here's a link to a recent systematic review which summarises the latest research in people:
I mention the round GB row! I'm raising money for the British Heart Foundation. If you have some spare change to donate I would be incredibly grateful.
