Are body weight and eating times connected?

It is a common perception that a caloric deficit is what boosts weight loss. Consuming less and burning more is the big idea behind quick weight loss. However, there are numerous other factors that add to the quick loss of weight. Those ideas target long-term results which make maintaining your weight easier. Also, cutting down on your diet is still a shortcut which cannot ever guarantee sustainable results. The timing of our meals is vital. Our bodies use up calories better when we eat in the morning that later in the day.

Therefore, it is advisable to consume a full-fledged, nutritious breakfast to start your day off fresh. The internal process of our body, circadian rhythm, is what functions our sleep-wake routine during the 24 hours of our day. It smoothens the digestion process, metabolism, and regulation of appetite. Consequentially, this entire process affects not just our physical, but mental health as well.


Research has shown that people who eat more at night have had their circadian rhythm disturbed which has had adverse effects on their body. As a result, this disruption has been a threat to the hormones that regulate our appetite, energy, and glucose production. You end up eating more when this happens. Henceforth, it is suggested to eat less at night than in the morning. Fixing your sleep schedule is another crucial factor in weight loss. A proper sleep cycle will ensure your internal processes work better and the circadian rhythm is not disturbed. The metabolism stays in check too. However, skipping a meal in the evening is not a good option. To keep the metabolism going, you need to keep your food intake small and sporadic. To sum it up, eating right and in portions is key.
