Having been exposed to many of the trending diets, we can assume one thing – diets can be complicated and incompatible. The amount of effort that one has to invest in a diet isn’t always worth it, especially when it requires special appliances or foods. Moreover, the assessment of the benefits versus the cost is sometimes too obscure and complex for us to completely understand. Essentially, most of us don’t have the resources or the ability to strictly stick with a linear diet for a long duration of time – and that’s okay.

 

Simple healthy choices such as snacking on an apple instead of chips, or drinking water instead of soda go along way in terms of your well being. But you don’t need someone to tell you that, it is pretty common knowledge.

 

What isn’t common knowledge however, are the possible benefits of a certain practice called Time Restricted Feeding (the ideology that our study is predicated on). As stated on our laboratory’s website, we “discovered that confining caloric consumption to an 8- to 12-hour period–as people did just a century ago– might stave off high cholesterol, diabetes and obesity.”  By simply eating within a certain period of time, you could potentially benefit substantially from it. You don’t have to watch what you eat, but rather, when you eat.

 

There is no need to invest in expensive appliances, to apply for a membership with your local organic foods market, or to extensively meal prep weeks in advance. The only confines of this practice lie in the time restrictive aspect of it. It is simple, and effective.
