Early Time-Restricted Feeding Improves Insulin Sensitivity, Blood Pressure, And Oxidative Stress Even Without Weight Loss In Men With Prediabetes
Notes for this study:
||The 18:6 group had significantly lower insulin at 0, 60, and 90 minutes in an oral glucose tolerance test. Additionally, mean insulin was about 40 mU/I lower.
|Number of Subjects
||30-44, 45-64, 65+
In this crossover study, 12 males completed an 18:6 diet and a 12:12 diet in random order. In both treatments, participants could only eat the three meals provided to them throughout the day. This study was designed purely to test the effects of meal timing, so there was no caloric deficit in the diets. At the beginning and end of each treatment a 3-hour oral glucose tolerance test was performed and blood lipids and markers of inflammation and oxidative stress were measured.
