      Many people who follow a time-restricted eating diet follow a 16:8 eating schedule, where they eat all their foods in an 8-hour window and fast for the remaining 16 hours each day, the researchers noted. Intermittent fasting has been used by people to lose weight, improve cholesterol, increase metabolism and potentially reduce the risk of any chronic disease. Researchers have analyzed group of 20000 people among which they found that participants who were keen on doing 16:8 intermittent fasting are 91% more likely to die from cardiovascular disease than those who were not involved in any sort of fasting. Researchers have also confirmed that people who complete their calorie intake within 8 hours are more likely to die of stroke. It was also concluded that there are no benefits of time-restricted eating in general. However, it was noted that people with cancer who practice any sort of fasting are prone to earlier deaths than those who do not.
