Restricting food intake to a specified time could prevent health problems
Restricting food to a 10-hour window could overcome obesity and metabolic diseases - short science news

Researchers have discovered that mice with genetic defects in biological clock which is considered to be necessary for a healthy metabolism could be protected against obesity and other metabolic diseases if the food access is restricted to a 10 hr window. The scientists believe that restricting the food access lets the mice be in sync with their metabolic clocks, i.e. consuming the calories when the genes for digestion are most active. This could be helpful in humans in whom the circadian rhythm is disrupted like those working in night shifts.
