TIMET Study

Healthy Heroes Study

In collaboration with San Diego Fire and Rescue and Dr. Satchin Panda from the Salk Institute of Biological Sciences, this DHS/FEMA funded study evaluates the health benefits of time-restricted eating in San Diego Fire Fighters and emergency responders who work a 24-hour shift schedule. It is the first study of its kind to assess and test an intervention to improve biological rhythms and general health of shift workers.

We are investigating the impact of TRE (time restricted eating to 10 hours a day) on optimizing shift-workers' health over a 1-year period. Participants will be randomized to either the standard of care (SOC) group or the SOC with TRE group. All participants will be required to log their food and beverages through an app throughout the course of the study. There will be a clinic visit every three months to do blood tests, questionnaires, and body composition analyses.
