Info on Early Time Restricted Feeding

Blog

Or more commonly known as only eating during the day. I’m not sold on this pattern of eating as it really sounds like the 3 meal a day typical eating pattern. The only difference is that you stop eating just before a typical dinner hour, 6p to 7p.

Eating only during the first eight to 10 hours of the day — a form of intermittent fasting known as “early time-restricted feeding”— makes your body more sensitive to insulin. If you have prediabetes or borderline high blood pressure, your blood sugar levels and blood pressure will normalize.

The Cleveland Clinic

I subscribe more to the one meal a day pattern. It takes the work out of monitoring what you eat. If you’re eating once per day you don’t have to worry about remembering how much you had for breakfast or what you had for lunch. It’s super simple when all you have to do is look at dinner. Plus, at least for me, I find that I’m not hungry during the day at all and I’m not in the habit of feeding myself because it’s time for a feeding.

But, then again, this information comes from The Cleveland Clinic and I have to concede they may know a bit more than I do. 🙂
