If you’ve been try­ing to lose weight to no avail, look at what time you go to bed at night. A study done by the Fin­nish Na­tional In­sti­tute for Health and Wel­fare found that those who stayed up late ate more sugar and fats than those who were early ris­ers. Pub­lished in jour­nal Obe­sity, the study had re­searchers track the di­ets of al­most 2,000 men and women aged 25 to 74 years, and grouped them ac­cord­ingly with a ques­tion­naire. In gen­eral, the night owls leaned to­wards foods higher in sugar and lower in fi­bre, car­bo­hy­drate and fats. They also didn’t pri­ori­tise break­fast, had more ir­reg­u­lar meal­times, and had snacks twice as of­ten as the morn­ing peo­ple. So hit the sack early and you might just start see­ing the re­sults you de­sire.
