Stop wasting time counting your calorie, considering the eating/fasting timing and diet quality.

The “caloric balance” concept for obesity management is obsolete and ineffective, as described in the literature review by the legendary “Micky Stunkard” during the mid-20th century. Among hundreds of obesity studies, the outcomes are remarkably poor, with potential harmful emotional effects.

Our recent paper suggested that the disrupted “ Metabolic Tempo” in modern-day lifestyle contributes to the current prevalence of non-communicable diseases (NCD). The restoration of all tempo attributes through the combined diet-, time-, and calorie-restricted interventions could be the preferred strategy for NCD management as compared to the conventional “calorie in, calorie out” model.
