Is it Better to eat Early???

I sometimes wonder about this kind of research, but here it is:

The gist is that new research on mice suggests that if you eat late at night, you're more likely to put on weight.

I actually pretty much always stop eating around 6 or 7, not so much for weight loss reasons, but I find it's harder for me to fall asleep and stay asleep right after eating.

But, I still wonder about how when you eat could impact what you weigh? Maybe it has more to do with your body wanting to consume more calories if you delay eating, it would then mirror those studies showing that people who skipped breakfast consumed more calories throughout the day.


  1. There was an ooooollld study I read somewhere which stated that people who eat 2000 calories in the morning lose weight, while eating it at night they gain. I've found that to be more or less true-- I try to taper off as the day goes by, but if I eat too little at night I can't sleep because I'm hungry.

  2. Maybe if you have a solid breakfast you move more doing the day????
