(WHIO) — Changing what you eat to lose weight can be challenging, but adjusting when you eat could make the process a bit easier, according to a new report on intermittent fasting.

Researchers from the University of Surrey in the United Kingdom recently conducted a small, 10-week study, published in the Journal of Nutritional Sciences, to investigate how changing meal times can impact dietary intake, body composition and blood risk markers.

To do so, they examined adults, splitting them into two groups. One was required to delay breakfast by 90 minutes and eat dinner 90 minutes earlier, and the control group ate meals as they would normally. All participants had to provide blood samples, complete diet diaries and fill out a questionnaire immediately after the study.
