A study presented at the American Heart Association's Epidemiology and Prevention│Lifestyle and Cardiometabolic Scientific Sessions 2024 suggests that time-restricted eating plans, where individuals limit their eating to less than 8 hours per day, may be associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease-related death.

The research analyzed data from over 20,000 U.S. adults and found that those following an 8-hour eating window had a 91% higher risk of cardiovascular death.

While time-restricted eating has shown short-term benefits, the study highlights potential long-term adverse effects, emphasizing the need for personalized dietary recommendations aligned with individual health status.

Further research is needed to explore the biological mechanisms underlying these associations and to assess the impact of time-restricted eating on diverse populations worldwide.
