A new, year-long study (University of Illinois) compared the impact on weight loss of a compressed eating day (between noon and 8 PM) vs. cutting calories by 25% each day (and having to constantly count them). The finding: It’s just as effective to watch the clock as it is to watch what you eat. Both groups lost about 5% of their body weight after a year, but the researchers noted that focusing on when you eat not what “is an easier diet to adhere to.” They considered the findings exciting because they showed that people could stick with a daily model of intermittent fasting vs. fad diets where they constantly fall off the wagon.
