Study Summary

This trial will compare the effects of two different types of diets on weight loss, metabolism, and circadian biology in adults who are overweight or obese. The first diet is a time-restricted diet, where people eat whatever they want but only during a 10-hour window each day. The second diet is a more traditional diet where people eat whatever they want but try to limit their overall daily calorie intake. The investigators hypothesize that the time-restricted diet will be more effective than the traditional diet in terms of weight loss and improvement of metabolism.
