Time-restricted eating, also known as intermittent fasting, has numerous benefits on several aspects of health.

When adopting time-restricted eating, you reduce the window of time you have to consume your daily food intake. This allows the body to repair and rejuvenate, laying the groundwork for optimal health.

What does an intermittent fasting schedule look like?

Every day, you consume your foods for the day for 8 hours, then you fast for the remaining 16 hours. You would eat your breakfast at 10 a.m. then have your last meal at 6 p.m. Although there are no dietary restrictions with intermittent fasting, it’s best to eat good quality foods, mainly fruits, and vegetables. An excellent diet would be the Mediterranean diet.
