The old adage ‘breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dine like a pauper’ could be the best way to lose weight and stay healthy.
A new study in the journal of Sleep (April 12 2019) demonstrated that a daytime eating schedule promoted weight loss and a positive profile for fuel oxidation, energy metabolism, and hormonal markers, compared with a nighttime eating schedule, independent of caloric intake.
The research found that individuals who followed a daytime eating schedule (food consumed between 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m) had a better metabolic profile than those who followed a delayed eating schedule (food consumed between 12:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m).
The other key focus was sleep. The participants in the study were asked to maintain a sleep-wake cycle between 11:00 p.m. and 9:00 a.m.
So if you’re struggling with weight gain, examining your eating schedule could be a good next step. For more nutritional and mind/body help, book an appointment with us at https://awakeningshealth.com.
