The members ate the identical variety of energy in each the meals, and the researchers recorded the members’ ranges of glucose, insulin, triglycerides, cortisol and different markers within the night and the subsequent morning.
The findings, revealed within the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Medical Endocrinology & Metabolism, confirmed that when members ate dinner later, at 10pm, their blood sugar ranges had been greater and the quantity of fats burned was decrease, even when the meal was the identical because the one eaten at 6 pm.
“On common, the height glucose stage after late dinner was about 18 % greater, and the quantity of fats burned in a single day decreased by about 10 % in comparison with consuming an earlier dinner. The results we’ve got seen in wholesome volunteers is perhaps extra pronounced in individuals with weight problems or diabetes, who have already got a compromised metabolism,” mentioned the research’s first writer Chenjuan Gu, MD, PhD.
