Eating a late meal increases risk of obesity and diabetes

Eating a late meal increases risk of obesity and diabetes image

Eating a late meal—and going to bed soon after—increases your chances of putting on weight and even developing type 2 diabetes.

People eating their last meal of the day around 10pm aren't giving their body enough time to metabolize the food properly. They burn less fat and process glucose, sugar in the blood, poorly, which can lead to type 2 diabetes, say researchers from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

They compared the biological processes happening to people who ate at 10pm or at 6pm, with both groups going to bed at 11pm. They gave the same meal to 20 volunteers either at 6pm or 10pm and discovered that the glucose levels in the late eaters was 18 percent higher, while they burned 10 percent less fat.

The differences could be even more marked in people who are obese or are already diabetic, the researchers warn.

Read all about it - but only in WDDTY

From now on, you won't be able to buy WDDTY in a store, as we are reverting to a subscription-only magazine. The reason goes to the very heart of what this publication stands for. As a newsstand title, we were being censored in all sorts of subtle and not-so-subtle ways by a retail trade that chose never to support press freedoms. But we don't want to stop you from getting vital information which is why we've curated this special subscription offer just for you. By subscribing you can still get direct access to all this information every month, via a subscription, as thousands of others do.
