Adults who restrict their food intake to eight hours or less per day are almost twice as likely to die from heart disease than those following a typical eating pattern, show “surprising” results from a study.

The US and Chinese researchers said their preliminary findings “do not support long-term use” of the 16:8 pattern of time-restricted dieting for preventing cardiovascular disease (CVD) deaths.
