If you are a woman living in this appearance-oriented society, “diet” is probably a common topic that randomly pops in conversations here and there. However, honestly, how many actually try to regulate food consumption and engage in supplementary workout? Since eating is the pleasure of life for many of us, refraining from devouring junk food while squirming on the couch watching your favorite TV show is one of the hardest temptations to resist.
A research team at the Salk Institute suggested a decent deal — you can eat all you want and still lose weight. The life-long dilemma for the ladies has been solved! But you can only eat for 12 hours. Let say you want to eat all three meals. You indeed can, but you have to do so within the 12 hour period.
This method of diet helps treat insomnia and accompanies the activation of day-time alertness. This is because making your eating schedule consistent brings a change in the biorhythm and impacts metabolism and sleeping pattern.
To further corroborate its finding, the research team tested 400 mice with similar weight. The team divided the pool into two groups; one group was fed at a stable period of time within the 12 hour time frame, and the other was fed whenever.
The result showed that the group that was fed without a certain eating schedule gained weight at a fast pace. However, the other group that ate only during the 12 hour period lost weight in a couple days. After 38 weeks, they weighted 25% less than the other group.
There are many methods to lose weight, but finding the right method for your own body is the most important as we are all different. While the society highlights the importance of appearance, it is essential to maintain a harmonious balance between your outer and inner beauty.
