Obesity is a big problem in the US, with the obesity rate for adults sitting at over 40%. So, it’s understandable that we are always looking for a better way to lose weight. Two methods, time-restricted eating and calorie restriction, are now being shown to be roughly equal in effectiveness.
With time-restricted eating, a person intermittently fasts, only eating inside of a specified time window. This may help to limit how much they eat.
On the other side, calorie restriction limits how many calories a person can eat in a day with no time restriction.
The takeaway is that both methods work and someone looking to lose weight should see which works best for them in terms of being able to stay on the diet.
