“Time Restricted Feeding in Male Runners”
This is a cross-over intervention study designed to evaluate how four weeks of time restricted feeding (16 hours fasting and 8 hours feeding), compared to four weeks of a more traditional eating pattern (12 hours fasting and 12 hours feeding), affects resting energy expenditure, subjective and biochemical markers of satiety and hunger, body composition, cardiovascular health, substrate utilization and fitness in male competitive runners.

Volunteers will adhere to a form of time restrictive feeding, 16 hours fasting and 8 hours eating per day.
Behavioral - Traditional Eating Pattern
