If you are looking to shed some pounds, then eating a later dinner might be the last thing you would want to do.
In a study published in the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, it was noted that eating your dinner late can contribute to high blood sugar and weight gain. This, in turn, can pose issues for your health.
“This study sheds new light on how eating a late dinner worsens glucose tolerance and reduces the amount of fat burned. The effect of late eating varies greatly between people and depends on their usual bedtime,” one of the authors noted [via NDTV].
The study once again underlines the importance of having a proper schedule for eating as it can have a huge impact on your overall health. Many observations have concluded that eating dinner before 7:00 PM is best for your body assuming that you will be sleeping early.
