Eating dinner by 3pm improves blood pressure, insulin sensitivity and oxidative stress
May 13, 2018
A study just out shows intermittent fasting improves health even in the absence of weight loss. Researchers showed that eating for the first 6 hours in the morning and ending by 2 p.m (dinner) for only 5 weeks improves insulin sensitivity, blood pressure and oxidative stress.
The eating program also reduced evening appetite. Oxidative stress is a key driver of inflammation and aging. The study conducted in men is published in the journal Cell Metabolism.
