Impact of Dietary Advice & Moderate Time Restricted Feeding on Health

18 February 2020

A 10-week moderate time restricted feeding trial with or without dietary advice. We are investigating the effects of daily extended fasting on weight, heart disease, appetite and diet quality. Time restricted feeding is a form of intermittent fasting which aims to combine daily feeding and fasting cycles with one’s natural circadian rhythm. Current evidence suggests eating in alignment with circadian rhythms has significant effect on body weight, heart disease risk factors and appetite.
