Health experts warn in a recent study that people who eat late at night are more likely to become obese.
Experts say that such people burn 10% less body fat than others because they eat late at night and then go to bed early.
Scientists at Johns Hopkins University studied 20 healthy men and women, divided them into two groups, one group at 6 pm and the other at 10 pm. Later they both fell asleep.
Experts examine their body fat burning during this time, which found that people who eat late eat 10 per cent less fat than those who eat early.
Experts said that the amount of glucose in the body of people who ate late was also found to be 18% higher than others, due to which people who eat late become obese quickly.
Another study has found that eating after 7 pm also increases the risk of death due to high blood pressure and stroke.
This discovery has been made by the experts of Dokuz Elol University Turkey in their research. Experts warn that if food is eaten late at night, as a result, our body stays awake all night instead of resting. When our body is ready to sleep, its blood pressure also drops by 10% compared to other times.
Scientists say that after eating, our body releases stress hormones which keep our blood pressure normal. This condition persists for 2 hours after eating, during which we either do not get any sleep or not a full sleep.
During the study, doctors studied 721 people aged 53 and over who had high blood pressure. After a detailed analysis of their sleep, waking and eating times, they found that people who go to bed less than 2 hours after eating dinner have about 3 times higher blood pressure throughout the night.
Experts say that staying up all night with high blood pressure is very dangerous because it increases the risk of death due to stroke and heart disease up to three times. The best way to avoid this danger is to eat dinner as much early as possible.
