1. Time Restricted Feeding (TRF): Why would the time of day you eat effect your weight and reduce inflammation ?

Recent research has found that when animals eat during the day could be a key factor in weight loss (or gain).

Twelve studies of time restricted eating were identified with daily fasting intervals ranging from 12 to 20 hours, with variability in coordination with light/dark phases and composition of food.   In mice, time-restricted feeding was associated with reductions in body weight, total cholesterol,triacylglycerol, glucose, insulin, interleukin 6, and TNF-α as well as improvements in insulin sensitivity. It is notable that these health outcomes occurred despite variable effects of intermittent fasting on weight loss.  Patterson et al 2015. Read More…
