Time-Restricted Eating Boosts Weight Loss

Diet and exercise can help you lose weight, and eating within an eight-hour window appears to bolster the amount of weight loss, according to a study published in JAMA Internal Medicine (August 2022). For the study, which included 90 adults ages 25 to 75 with obesity, all participants took part in a weight loss program. Half of them restricted their eating to early in the day (7 a.m. to 3 p.m.), while the other half ate over a period of 12 hours or more during the day. Over the 14 weeks of the study, both groups lost weight. However, those in the time-restricted eating group lost more weight—an average of about 14 pounds, compared to nine pounds in the group who did not restrict the timing of eating.
