Notes for this study:
Participants were randomly assigned to a control diet or a 16:8 time-restricted eating diet alongside a resistance training protocol. There was no caloric deficit, but each group logged their dietary intake using a seven-day food diary. Individuals in the normal diet ate meals at 0800, 1300, and 2000, and individuals in the TRE group ate meals at 1300, 1600, and 2000. Body weight, composition, substrate utilization, blood, and strength were measured at baseline and at the end of the study.
