You don't have to search hard to find a diet program and most of them focus around the food you eat.  But how about diet that focuses on how much time you spend eating instead?  Time-Restricted eating or intermittent fasting, has some research to back up its claim of helping control your waistline. It works like this, continue to eat the same food you do now, but only eat within a certain time window of 8 to 12 hours. Outside your time window, you can drink water, coffee or tea, without milk or sugar, but nothing else. Research has shown it not only can help you slim down but once you are at your goal weight, time-restricted eating helped maintain your weight, even when cheating and experts claim the regime can lower your risk of diabetes, heart disease and other chronic illnesses.  During your fasting time, your body quickly uses the glucose and turns to stored fat for energy.  Experts suggest if you want to try it out to start slow with a time window of 12 hours and gradually cutting it down to 8.
