A new study will soon be published that looks at the links between late night eating and obesity. In this study, two sets of mice were given the same amount of daily calories, yet one set was given the bulk of their calories WHEN THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO BE SLEEPING. The results? The mice given foods while they should have been sleeping had a 48% increase in body weight! Definite conclusions cannot be made, of course, until human studies have been tallied.
And yet, does it make you think about your eating routines? Sleep and weight have been linked to obesity in the past. We've been working on all of these issues in Practice and would love to have you join us!
Have a well week,
