How does time restricted feeding work?

"In clinical trials in the context of type two T1DM, only a small number of patients remain in remission over a year. This highlights the need for further long term follow up, as a few patients who have gone untreated do not achieve remission after a year. Time restricted feeding remains a viable option for long term control in T1DM patients." - Anonymous Online Contributor
