Dr Fatima Perez de Heredia, PhD, FHEA, is Senior Lecturer in Physiology at the School of Biological and Environmental Sciences, Liverpool John Moores University. She is a biologist passionate about the physiology of nutrition, obesity and adipose tissue. She is particularly fascinated by the links between nutritional status, adiposity and inflammation.

Her current research looks into a dietary and exercise intervention for improving body composition and cardiometabolic risk in cardiac rehabilitation patients.

Paper reference

Time-restricted eating (TRE) has become a very popular method for managing body weight, but the scientific evidence is not conclusive. This Journal Club session will review a recently-published article ‘Effect of time restricted eating on body weight and fasting glucose in participants with obesity: results of a randomized, controlled, virtual clinical trial’, with a discussion about the pros and cons of TRE.

We will be covering tools and techniques to help you best understand and appraise this research paper, through both the critical examination and discussion led by our nutrition guest expert and chaired by Dr Caroline Childs.

About Journal Club Chair, Dr Caroline Childs

Each Journal Club session is chaired by Dr Caroline Childs, Nutrition and Metabolism subject lead in Medicine at the University of Southampton. She received student-nominated awards for ‘most engaging lecturer’ and ‘best pastoral support’ and a colleague-nominated award for teaching excellence.

As she says, “Developing skills in critical appraisal is an essential part of being a competent nutrition professional – whether you’re a dietitian, nutritionist or health professional specialising in nutrition.”


Nutrition research reported in the media often highlights mixed or contradictory results between studies. So, as a nutrition professional, how can you ensure you use the strongest available evidence to inform your practice?
