Researchers who studied eight men with prediabetes found that those who followed early time-restricted feeding -- where all calories for the day are consumed by mid-afternoon and within eight hours or less -- had improvements in insulin sensitivity and pancreatic response to elevated blood glucose, compared with those who ate meals over a 12-hour period, even when eating the same number of calories. The findings in Cell Metabolism also revealed an association between the shorter, earlier eating pattern and a significant reduction in blood pressure, oxidative stress and evening appetite levels.
