Effects of Time Restricted Eating on Human Health

SERIES (2/6)


Time-restricted feeding is an intermittent fast which consists in limiting the daily feeding period. However, the definition of the restriction is still imprecise in studies on humans and varies from 8 to 12 h, depending on the sources. First, the nomenclature used to describe the type of time-restricted feeding practiced is standardized:

TRE followed by the number of hours of feeding and fasting in a 24-h period, separated by a slash.

For example, TRE 8/16 indicates:
  • Restriction of the daily feeding period to 8 h for a 16 h fast.
  • Out of 22 studies in the review, only 1 practiced a restriction equal to 12 h or less.
  • All the others having limited daily nutrition to a window of 10 h or less.
  • The 8/16 variant is the most common form of TRE ( >50% of the trials).
  • The food window can also be varied during the day.
For example:
  • Early TRE (eTRE), in which the feeding period started earlier in the day.
  • Delayed or late TRE (dTRE) delays the intake of the first meal.
  • TRE is generally an every day water and ad libitum fast, which means that participants can eat until satiety without ay restriction on the quality or quantity of food intake.
  • However some used an iso-caloric protocols (having the same amount of calories each day).

These characteristics show that TRE could be adaptable to the participants eating habits, which may positively influence dietary adherence.
