16/8 TRE Time-Restricted Eating Event

16/8 TRE (Time-Restricted Eating) Protocol

banner link to fasting home page

This way of doing intermittent fasting involves daily fasting for 16 hours. Sometimes this is also referred to as an 8-hour eating ‘window’ or TRE (Time-Restricted Eating). You eat all your meals within an 8-hour time period and fast for the remaining 16 hours. Generally, this is done daily or almost daily.

For example, you may eat all your meals within the time period of 11:00 am and 7:00 pm. Generally, this means skipping breakfast. You generally eat two or three meals within this 8-hour period.


For me, the best times is fasting from 9:00 pm – 1 pm the next day. So this leaves me with lunch at 1:00 pm and dinner at around 7:00 pm and a little snack just before 9:00 pm.

Of course, everyone can adjust the times to their needs and there is not a set rule for it. Just pick the times that work best for you.

  • Breastfeeding – you need extra nutrients for your child.

  • A child under 18 – you need extra nutrients to grow.

You can fast, but may need supervision, under these conditions:

Example of 16/8 TRE Protocol

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday
Sleep Fast Fast Fast Fast Fast Fast Fast
Breakfast Fast Fast Fast Fast Fast Fast Fast
Lunch Feast Feast Feast Feast Feast Feast Feast
Dinner Feast Feast Feast Feast Feast Feast Feast
Sleep Fast Fast Fast Fast Fast Fast Fast

** This table is just an example and exactly the same what I use for my 16/8 TRE protocol. Adjust the time as you like, for example, you might wish to fast from Lunch to Breakfast. But it has to be continuous 16 hours of fasting. Two 8 hours fasts don’t count.
