Delaying breakfast by 90 minutes and eating dinner 90 minutes earlier could add up to an easier way to lose weight, according to a study published in the Journal of Nutritional Science.

 

 

A group of 29- to 57-year-olds ate normally but changed their meal times—a form of intermittent fasting called time-restricted feeding.

After 10 weeks, they reported less hunger during the day and had cut back on snacking and lost 2 percent of their body fat—without dieting. This time-restricted eating method may hold the key to overall improved health and body composition. If you want to lose weight without committing to a major diet overhaul, this could be for you.
