I was introduced to time restricted feeding by a friend, who shared its rich scientific story. As an engineer, I believe in Science and listening to your own body. It’s rare to find one lifestyle change that can work just as effectively for everyone. Everyone is different, and blanket approaches are seldom successful. However, the science made sense, it was logical, and the proven benefits she explained resonated very closely with me; TRF was to become my new goal.
When Lynn was in high school, her dad wanted to lose weight. He began cutting out his late night snacks, and Lynn’s mom began cooking dinner earlier in the evening to help with the diet.

Without realizing it, Lynn had started a diet of time-restricted feeding (TRF).
