In a new study published by Cell Metabolism, researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital found that late eating has an impact on the three players in body weight regulation and in turn, obesity risk: regulation of calorie intake, the number of calories burned, and molecular changes in fat tissue.

“We wanted to test the mechanisms that may explain why late eating increases obesity risk,” said one of the leading researchers, Frank Scheer. “Previous research by us and others had shown that late eating is associated with increased obesity risk, increased body fat, and impaired weight loss success. We wanted to understand why.”
