RESTORATIVE SLEEP AND TIME RESTRICTED FEEDING

Sometimes optimising health is not just about what you eat, it can also be about WHEN you eat.

Fasting is basically not eating.

When you are asleep you are fasting.

The time between getting up and eating and when you finish eating for the day is called your 'eating window.' In recent times there has been a lot of studies on what is called 'time-restricted-feeding.' One study concluded, "We detected improved sleep, prevention of body weight gain, and deceleration of cardiac ageing under TRF, even when caloric intake and activity were unchanged." (4)

Basically if you start to eat at midday and finish by 5pm then your eating window is just 5 hours. Time restricted feeding "prevents excessive body weight gain, improves sleep, and attenuates age- and diet-induced deterioration in cardiac performance" (5)
