Research results that obesity and diabetes have improved simply by "limiting the time zone to eat within 10 hours a day"
Among the various diet methods,Fast for 36 hours and eat in the next 12 hours"Slightly extreme techniques have also appeared, but the latest experiment reported that" obesity and diabetes have greatly improved even after 14 hours of fasting a day ".
Ten-Hour Time-Restricted Eating Reduces Weight, Blood Pressure, and Atherogenic Lipids in Patients with Metabolic Syndrome: Cell Metabolism
Limited eating times could be a new way to fight obesity and diabetes
Using a mousePast experimentsSo, it has been found that "without reducing calorie intake, metabolic diseases can be improved simply by reducing the time of eating." AlsoAnother studyThen, it was also confirmed that the same dietary restriction was “preventive for the Pre-diabetes army”. But alreadymetabolic syndromeThe study group of Satchdananda Panda, a biologist at the University of California, San Diego, identified patients with metabolic syndrome. I decided to conduct a targeted experiment.
Research groups selected obesity, hyperglycemia, hypertension, and high levels to select experimental candidates.LDL cholesterol・ Low levelHDL cholesterolRecruiting metabolic syndrome patients who satisfy at least three of the five items.AndroidAndiOSReleased for smartphonesmyCircadianClockUsing the app, we asked the candidates to measure calorie intake and lifestyle for two weeks.
As a result, it was found that 19 patients with metabolic syndrome “continue to eat meals for 14 hours or more a day”. Therefore, the research group asked these 19 people to “limit only 10 hours a day to eat things” without changing their lifestyle such as eating and exercising. There is no specific time, for example, one person is restricted to “9:00 to 19:00” and another person is restricted to “8 to 18:00”. It was said that it was possible to set the time freely. In addition, water and medicine prescribed by doctors can be taken outside of the predetermined time.
A health checkup was conducted 12 weeks after the start of the meal time limit, and compared with before the start of the experiment. As a result, the body weight, waist circumference, blood pressure, LDL cholesterol, non-HDL cholesterol,Hemoglobin A1cIt was said that improvement was recognized in all items such as "". Approximately two-thirds of the participants also reported benefits such as “improving sleep quality” and “reducing hunger before going to bed”. As a result of restricting the time of eating, participants reduced the calorie intake by about 8% on average, but strictly calculated so as not to change the calorie intakeAnother studyHowever, the same effect has been confirmed, and the research group believes that the indicator of metabolic disease is not simply a reduction in calorie intake.
Mr. Panda said about this research, “We can expect that a simple technique that only limits the time of the meal will be a powerful treatment for people with metabolic diseases such as metabolic syndrome.” Said. The research group will continue with 144 participants and strictRandomized controlled trialbyLarge-scale experimentThe policy is to establish a time limit for eating as a treatment.
