Dietary strategies for weight loss

World People : When is the best time to eat?

Michelle AKA GraciousMi: Me oh!!!!! from my experience, and it has worked for me 100% of the time when applied.

Timing of meal consumption.

Meal timing and the natural cycle of physical, mental, and behaviour changes that the body goes through in a 24-hour cycle (AKA circadian rhythm) have raised a novel issue in weight management.

Alterations in circadian rhythms produce biochemical, physiological, and behavioural circadian rhythm disruptions, which can be caused by the lack of change between day/night synchronization (such as being exposed to artificial light at night), eating at night, or a shift in time due to jet lag or night schedule.

Eating late can cause circadian disruption, resulting in production of free cortisol, changes in daily rhythms of body temperature, decreased resting energy expenditure, and decreased glucose tolerance.

Thus, timing of meals could have serious implications not only for weight management, but also for development of cardiovascular disease. A recent review confirmed that skipping breakfast increased the risk of overweight and obesity.93 Additionally, late-night eating was associated with weight gain as well as a cluster of conditions that increase the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes (AKA metabolic syndrome).

The American Heart Association recommends distributing calories over a defined period of the day, consuming a greater share of the total calorie intake earlier in the day, and maintaining consistent overnight fasting periods.

Eating a high-calorie breakfast and overnight fasting could have positive effects on prevention of weigh gain, while intermittent fasting may help control calorie intake in.
