A mat­ter of meal­times

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - Wellbeing -

Could los­ing weight and re­duc­ing late-night crav­ings be as sim­ple as re­strict­ing meal­times to be­tween 8am and 2pm? This is the sug­ges­tion put for­ward by a re­cent Amer­i­can study. The the­ory is that if you only con­sume calo­ries while ac­tively burn­ing them, it will al­ter fat and car­bo­hy­drate burn­ing pat­terns. Study par­tic­i­pants who ate be­tween 8am and 2pm were not hit by hunger pangs late at night, and kept ap­petite lev­els even. But don’t ditch din­ner yet – re­searchers say more study is needed to af­firm the the­ory.
