2013 Harvard LARGE Study Confirms, It’s Not What You Eat, It’s WHEN You Eat It for Weight Loss!


Think the folks at Harvard might want a copy of EET’s New Book on Timing for Weight Loss?  Frank Sheer, Harvard Neuroscientist and author of the study, “This is the first large scale prospective study to demonstrate the TIMING of meals predicts weight loss effectiveness.”

Click on the links at the end of this post for more details, but here’s a summary:

Same total calories — one group ate largest meal before 3:00 PM, the other group after 3:00 PM


“”Late lunch eaters lost less weight and displayed a slower weight-loss rate during the 20 weeks of treatment than early eaters (P=0.002). Surprisingly, energy intake, dietary composition, estimated energy expenditure, appetite hormones and sleep duration was similar between both groups. No surprise to EET Fitness .  The late eaters also had higher risk factors for diabetes.”  We knew that, too 🙂


“Eating late may influence the success of weight-loss therapy. Novel therapeutic strategies should incorporate not only the caloric intake and macronutrient distribution—as is classically done—but also the timing of food.”

I’d be happy to show them a novel strategy that has a 5+ year track record of success.  We can start with the 7 other types of EET Timing I’ve discovered, because the Harvard study only focuses on a variation of one: EET Metabolic Timing.  We’d also do our best to help the researchers understand why EET would STRONGLY DISAGREE with their conclusions to require tracking calories AND restricting meal timing.  Diets should require neither.  Here’s what EET believes:

Forced Meal Timing along with forced calorie counting would cause more weight GAIN than counting calories alone long-term.

EET’s Pain-Free Guideline #1 says Yo-Yo Must Go for a reason.   Metabolic Timing is just as worthless for long-term results as as counting calories if you can’t stay with it!!  Since no one can stay with counting calories (per science), what chance does adding a timing restriction have?  Let me estimate: NONE.  EET’s new book explains  why and what science says to do about it!!  

While there’s disagreement on how to use the science, the results are clear–TIMING MATTERS — A LOT—WITH OR WITHOUT EXERCISE.  Hopefully, adding a large Harvard study to our credentials (many more in the book) shows you we’re not kidding when we say EET’s Pain-Free Guidelines “Put Science On Your Side” for long-term success.  

Tune in tomorrow, and we’ll share some actual content about Timing from EET’s new book that should help you see just how different EET’s Timing Diet is from any diet you’ve ever seen. 

Timing of food intake predicts weight loss effectiveness – Nature

Could the timing of when you eat, be just as important as what you eat

It’s not what you eat, it’s when you eat: People who dine later   Nice title!

It’s not just what you eat, it’s when you eat it – Telegraph  also nice!
