TRE is not a diet and fasting (because these two are temporary and have regulations) but:
Why does TRE work?
Because calorie does not = mean calories!
More important than what we eat is when we eat!
Satchidananda Panda already proved this about 10 years ago with his mouse experiments:
Many bodily functions and the release of all hormones in the body are subject to Chrono biology. (This is the science that deals with the temporal organization of biological processes).
Melatonin (the “sleep hormone”) is an insulin antagonist and slows down our metabolism.
Insulin is responsible for glucose absorbed, Ed, and taken into the liver and muscle
However, insulin production slows down towards evening.
That is why it is recommended not to eat anything for 3 hours before bed and not to start eating again until 1 hour after getting up.
There are no restrictions during the 8-hour eating phase, except that you should not eat more than usual.
