Study Summary

This trial will test whether time restricted feeding, or eating within an 8-hour window, can improve health outcomes. There will be 2 groups, one that eats within an 8-hour window and one that doesn't, and various health outcomes will be measured. The study will last 3 1/2 months.

Study Objectives

Outcome measures can provide a clearer picture of what you can expect from a treatment.
Primary outcome measures

Secondary outcome measures
Adherence to time period of eating recommendation in both study groups: self reporting during virtual visits and through food photography / annotated entries.
Adherence to virtual visit with psychologist or dietician
Change in 24 hour urinary AGE levels
