When it comes to eating healthy, timing is crucial.
According to studies, the time of day you eat may be just as crucial for your health as the food you eat.
According to the authors of a new study published online Sept. 22 in the journal Endocrine Reviews, eating your meals in a constant window of 8 to 10 hours may help prevent and manage chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
"People who want to reduce weight and live a healthier lifestyle should pay closer attention to when and what they eat. Time-restricted eating is a simple and successful dietary plan that does not need as much mental calculation as calculating calories "Satchidananda Panda of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California, remarked.
In a journal news release, Panda stated, "Intermittent fasting can improve sleep and a person's quality of life while also lowering the risk of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease."
Time-restricted eating is a sort of intermittent fasting in which eating is limited to a set number of hours per day. Intermittent fasting is a trendy diet trend that helps people lose weight, enhance their health, and simplify their lives, according to studies.
Investigators looked at the science underlying time-restricted eating and analyzed previous studies as part of their study.
Sleep and quality of life increased when eating was limited to less than 12 hours per day, according to the study. At the same time, the chances of heart and liver disease, as well as obesity, fell.
Genes, hormones, and metabolism all rise and fall at different times of the day, according to new studies. When we eat according to the body's intrinsic clock, we can improve our health and lower our risk of chronic diseases.
"Eating at irregular times disrupts the synchronicity of our internal program, putting us at risk for sickness," Panda explained. "Anyone can follow an intermittent fasting lifestyle. It has the potential to reduce health inequities and allow everyone to live a happy and healthy life."
