Dr. Oz has become known for his popular TV show that often focuses on the newest techniques for weight-loss success. And while most dieters are familiar with following diet guidelines that focus on which foods to eat and which to avoid, the "Dr. Oz Show" recently featured the new concept of time-restricted eating, which has shown that when you eat can be just as important as what you eat when it comes to winning at weight-loss.

How to time your diet breakfast

Dr. Oz emphasized that when it comes to weight-loss success, breakfast plays a key role in your diet.

The ideal time to eat that breakfast is 12 hours after dinner, explained the popular diet guru. For example, if you eat dinner at 8 p.m., plan to eat breakfast at 8 a.m. A 12-hour span between dinner and breakfast gives your body the short fast that it needs to function at its peak, according to Dr. Oz. This short diet fast also helps your body to metabolize glucose and helps to cut down on the amount of calories eaten.

Lunch in luxury

Dr. Oz also revealed that the newest weight-loss research shows the benefits of eating your biggest meal early in the day. That's the time when your body is active, and eating more earlier also can help to reduce the risk of conditions including diabetes and heart disease, noted the TV show host.

To achieve your weight-loss goals, Dr. Oz recommends eating a large lunch between noon and 1 p.m. Got the munchies before dinner? The diet guru suggests consuming a small snack prior to dinner, which should be smaller than your lunch.

Snack smart

For weight-loss, time your snack for halfway between lunch and dinner, advises Dr.

Oz. When it comes to choosing the right snacks for your diet, he recommends that you aim for ones with high contents of water, fiber, protein, and healthy fats, For example, consider preparing a bean dip from scratch with assorted vegetables, according to Dr. Oz. The diet physician also suggests that a filling cup of bean and vegetable soup can keep you going.

Dinner time

Dr. Oz revealed that a national sleep score survey showed that the majority of individuals head to bed by 11 p.m. Consequently, he recommends finishing dinner at 8 p.m. That gives your body time to digest your food before you lie down, which also boosts weight- loss.

Research on timing your meals

Healthline reported that by timing your meals, you can regulate your metabolism, improve your sleep, and also take control of your weight-loss. The key to a long overnight fast is timing. By eating your last diet meal earlier and then waiting 12 hours until breakfast, you can boost your fat loss, according to Healthline. The overnight fast gives your body enough time to achieve a state of ketosis. That means that your body is utilizing fat for energy.
