The study also found that the majority of participants eat on a 15-hour clock and are consuming more calories in the first 3 hours of the evening compared to the first 8 hours of the day. Previous studies have shown the positive effects have to do with the body’s internal clocks (called circadian rhythm) which regulate everything from metabolism to hormone production to repairing damage. Eating late in the evening throws off the internal clocks and wreaks havoc on metabolism.

    Fascinating. I’ve been intermittent fasting in 16 hour increments for 5 days a week for about 16 months now, and love it. I just can’t seem to get a grip on my circadian rythm in combination with food intake. Does this study provide any input on how soon to start eating after waking, or how soon to stop eating prior to sleeping?
