Eat all of your Christmas Cookies at Once?

Studies beginning with mice and fruit flies suggested that limiting eating to a ten-hour window each day can provide health benefits. Studying healthy people followed by people with metabolic diseases showed similar results. Health benefits include: weight loss, lower blood sugar, lower blood pressure, lower bad cholesterol, and increased good cholesterol.

Usually not hungry when I first wake, it was easy for me to try TRE—time restricted eating. I did lose weight, but I haven’t noticed other changes. One of my sisters also lost weight using TRE as one of her strategies.

The article doesn’t pose a reason for better health measures but did find that people ate 8% fewer calories.

And no, the article doesn’t recommend demolishing all of your Christmas cookies at one setting. I remember in years past developing the holiday habit of one sweet after dinner. Unfortunately, when the chocolate was gone my craving wasn’t.

Enjoy your holidays with or without treats.

  1. But Dentists DO recommend that you eat all your cookies at once so you do the sugar hit on the teeth one time and then clean them. I keep the weight off by not starting before 10:00 or 11:00 and usually finish dinner before 5:00 pm UNLESS I am invited out! Victoria

  2. Hi

    I did notice you lost weight. I will try this too.

    We are now in Ushuaia in Argentina. We did a lot of walking in Torres de paine and it was beautiful. A lot of the walks were challenging and around 5 kilometers. We didnt do any really tough hikes tho. Patagonia is Paradise with bad weather as one person said to us. The food has been good and the people are friendly and helpful. Yes, the roads and infrastructure is lousy. The guides really make a huge difference. We have enjoyed talking politics and culture and learning about Mama Nature here. This part of the world is a huge mess . Ofcourse who are we to talk?

    We have been lucky and saw 3 illusive pumas. We get on a boat tomorrow to see penguins and other stuff.
