In a recent study, the researchers worked with a type of intermittent fasting and showed how altering the timing of your dinner and breakfast could aid weight loss.

In last few years, intermittent fasting has garnered much interest mainly because of its ability help weight loss. It does this by encouraging the body to burn fats into energy.

There are different types of intermittent fasting models and one such model is time-limited eating. This model allows dieters to eat within a specific window of time every day. The eating window might range from anywhere between 6-12 hours a day.

In this study, the researchers wanted to see how does modifying the time patterns affects weight and several other health factors, like biomarkers for heart disease and diabetes.

The sample size of the study was rather small. Only 16 people participated in this study, which lasted for 10 weeks.

The researchers asked one group to take dinner an hour-and-a-half before than normal and breakfast an hour-and-a-half later than usual.

The researchers noted that people in the experimental group lost over two times more body fat compared to those who took their meals at their regular times.

The researchers also noticed that people who adjusted their meal times by 90 minutes every day ate less amounts of food compared to the participants belonging to control group.
