The New Paradigm: A Metabolic and Behavioral Timing Diet to reverse the obesity and diabetic epidemics. A systematic review of clinical and nonclinical evidence.
In 2009, The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) published an unprecedented obesity study designed to establish “population-wide recommendations by public health officials” (1). The study concluded that “behavioral factors rather than macronutrient metabolism are the main influences on weight loss.” Researchers said no more conventional diet trials were needed and called for “a new paradigm” in pursuing long-term weight loss. Every major obesity and chronic disease study before and since has confirmed the findings of the 2009 NEJM study (2); yet no meaningful changes to conventional diet and exercise programs have been adopted by clinicians or public health officials (3, 4).
