A study reveals the effect of meal timing on weight loss

A study published in the journal Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism confirmed that people who ate dinner at 9 p.m. vs. those who ate at 6 p.m. had higher blood sugar levels the next morning, along with less fat oxidation, another study published in the journal Finds. Nutrients Eating late in the evening may affect weight loss because your body’s ability to burn calories may be lower at night than it is throughout the day.

 

The study said that eating late in the day may affect metabolism and hunger hormones, which in turn can affect weight loss.

 

Researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital conducted a randomized trial that looked at the effect of eating later on hunger, as well as weight gain and loss. They found that eating later increased hunger while decreasing the amount of energy used while awake. It may naturally influence your appetite level and calorie burning rate, as well as fat storage and potential weight loss.

 

Nutritionist Catherine Gervasio said that the timing of meals is an important factor in weight management and the results in this study show how important it is to maintain a steady rate of metabolism by eating consistently at regular intervals.

 

Gervasio added that eating later, as evidenced by the study, affects the supposed normal function of the body’s hormones, specifically the hormones ghrelin and leptin, explaining that ghrelin is generally known as the “hunger hormone” because it stimulates appetite, “and because of that when the stomach is empty, levels increase.” The hormone ghrelin.

 

She pointed out that leptin, which is responsible for the feeling of fullness, the study indicates that eating late reduces leptin levels, which means a decrease in the “feeling of fullness” and when this happens, the body may naturally crave more food in a shorter time.
