Skip dinner to lose flab- Study

November 07, 2016


According to the latest study, having an early dinner or skipping it completely would result in losing the flab on body.

The first human test of early time-restricted (eTRF) feeding found that meal-timing strategy reduced swings in hunger and altered fat and carbohydrate burning patterns, which may help with losing weight.

During eTRF, people take their last meal by the mid-afternoon and stay away from eating till the breakfast the next morning.

“Eating only during a much smaller window of time than people are typically used to may help with weight loss,” said Courtney Peterson, researcher at Pennington Biomedical Research Centre in the US.

“We found that eating between 8 am and 2 pm followed by an 18-hour daily fast kept appetite levels more even throughout the day, in comparison to eating between 8 am and 8 pm, which is what the median American does,” said Peterson.

According to the internal clock in the body, several aspects of metabolism are at their optimal functioning in the morning.
