You slept through breakfast, worked through lunch, or arrived home so sleepy that you headed straight to bed. What are consequences?
According to a research, meal timing may affect health due to its impact on the body’s internal clock. In animal studies, it appears that when animals receive food while in an inactive phase such as when they are sleeping their internal clocks are reset in a way that can alter nutrient metabolism, resulting in greater weight gain, insulin resistance and inflammation. However, more research would need to be done in humans before that can be stated as a fact.
It is also found that eating late in the evening could increase cardiovascular risk, but further research is also required in this area too.
So next time, think twice before skipping food as your body loses an opportunity to even get out of the starting gate.
