Study Summary

This trial will assess if a 12-week intervention of time-restricted eating, or TRF, could help reduce cancer-related fatigue. Participants will be randomly assigned to either the TRF intervention or a control group. The TRF group will select an 10-hour window to consume all food and beverages. The study will also explore if there is a relationship between fatigue, circadian rhythm, and glucose metabolism.
