Show Notes: 

00:45 A year-long TRF study compared caloric restriction with caloric restriction within an early time restricted window of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Compliance may have been an issue.
02:05 There was a greater reduction in triglycerides and other proxies of metabolic health early in the study.
04:00 When you eat your last meal is independently correlated with bodyfat percentage. Complete your last meal before 6 hours of the mid-point of your sleep. 
05:00 Exercise with time restricted feeding protocols enhance the health benefits.
06:20 Metabolic rate was significantly reduced in participants who continuously restricted their energy intake compared to alternate day fasting participants. 
08:55 The study calorie restriction/IF with calorie restriction was conducted during COVID, so some follow up tests were not done. 
10:26 This study did not allow participants to select their eating window. 
12:53 Fasting may be an easier way for many to get into an energy deficit for weight loss.
14:15 There was a more significant reduction in blood triglycerides in the IF group.
16:05 We need to consider other changes in metabolic parameters, reduction in triglycerides, as well as changes in body composition in study results.
