You could be eligible to participate in exciting research looking at the effect of time-restricted eating on controlling changes in blood sugars associated with type 2 diabetes.
Diet is a common first-line treatment for individuals with type 2 diabetes, used to improve blood glucose control. Time-restricted eating (TRE) is a dietary strategy that encourages longer periods of fasting by reducing the time window that energy is consumed. It has been proposed that by purposefully delaying breakfast and bringing the dinner meal earlier in the evening, in a TRE pattern, blood glucose regulation may improve.
Eligible participants will be aged between 35 to 65 years, have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus (diet-controlled or taking up to 2 oral hypoglycaemic agents for at least 3 months), have a BMI between 25 and 45 kg/m2 and be able to attend our laboratory in Fitzroy, VIC, over a 7-week period.
