According to a new study, eating daily calories within a consistent window of 8-10 hours is a powerful strategy to prevent and manage chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.

The findings of the study were published in the journal 'Endocrine Reviews'.

Time-restricted eating is a type of intermittent fasting that limits your food intake to a certain number of hours each day.

Intermittent fasting is one of the most popular diet trends, and people are using it to lose weight, improve their health and simplify their lifestyles.

"People who are trying to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle should pay more attention to when they eat as well as what they eat. Time-restricted eating is an easy-to-follow and effective dietary strategy that requires less mental math than counting calories," said Satchidananda Panda, PhD, of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California.

"Intermittent fasting can improve sleep and a person's quality of life as well as reduce the risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease," added Panda.

In the study, the researchers explored the science behind time-restricted eating, recent clinical studies and the scope for future research to better understand its health benefits.

Recent research has revealed that genes, hormones and metabolism rise and fall at different times of the 24-hour day.

Aligning our daily habits of when we eat with the body's internal clock can optimise health and reduce the risk or disease burden of chronic conditions like diabetes, heart disease and liver disease.

"Eating at random times breaks the synchrony of our internal program and make us prone to diseases," said Panda.

"Intermittent fasting is a lifestyle that anyone can adopt. It can help eliminate health disparities and lets everyone live a healthy and fulfilling life," concluded Panda. (ANI)
