 Give Up Midnight Snacks to Lose Weight

Lose weight, sleep better, and have a healthy circulatory system just by cutting down on the late-night snacks. Dr. Girish Melkani said, "Time-restricted feeding would not require people to drastically change their lifestyles, just the times of day they eat. The message then would be to cut down on the late-night snacks."

San Diego State University researchers conducted a study on fruit flies and found that after feeding for 12-hours a day, the flies slept better, gained less weight and had much healthier circulatory systems than those who had no restrictions on eating. This effect appeared to be linked to the body clock genes that exist in several species, including humans.


The research appears in the journal Science.
