Daily fasting while restricting calories may not help you lose more pounds than just cutting back on calories.

A new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine finds over the course of a year, study participants who ate only from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. did not lose significantly more weight than individuals who ate whenever they wanted.

The study also found people did not see greater improvements in other obesity-related health measures like body mass index.
