Time-restricted dieting is no better than daily calorie restriction alone for weight loss or reducing metabolic risk factors in patients with obesity, a small trial shows.

The findings suggest that although limiting food consumption to an eight-hour window each day is still effective, the Chinese researchers say the benefits seen with this approach are primarily driven by caloric deficits.
