Benefits of time-restricted eating depend on age and sex
Time-restricted eating (TRE), a dietary regimen that restricts eating to specific hours, has garnered increased attention in weight-loss circles. A new study by Professor Satchin Panda, first author Amandine Chaix and colleagues showed that while age and sex do affect the outcomes of TRE, the eating strategy delivers multiple health benefits for young and old of both males and females, and indicates that TRE may be a valuable intervention for type 2 diabetes, fatty liver disease and liver cancer, and even infectious diseases such as COVID-19, in humans.
