When are our best times to start and stop eating? This is an interesting and oddly understudied question that researchers are now starting to investigate. Today, the typical diet advice given usually revolves around what to eat and how much to eat.
With most of the focus being on the total calories and macronutrient ratios. However, when we should eat is often seldom discussed. It turns out that when we eat is becoming a more fascinating area of study for nutrition, and for good reason.
What researchers are finding is that when we eat could be as important as what we eat, and even by how much. What is known as “time-restricted eating” is a time-based approach to nutrition.
