A new study published in the journal Science Advances shows that eating in the daytime might be better for your health than eating at night. Researchers split 19 men and women into two groups. One ate meals during the daytime, while the other ate during the night. The nighttime eaters had over a six percent increase in blood glucose levels, which can be a precursor of future health problems like type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Eating at night can be problematic for other reasons. You often eat far more than you might during the day, and those calories often come from unhealthy processed foods with lots of sugar and salt. And you don’t have the opportunity to burn off those calories either.
