In their recent study published in Cell Metabolism, Drs. Vujović, Qian, Garaulet, Scheer, and colleagues found that late eating increased hunger, modified appetite-regulating hormones, decreased daytime energy expenditure, and altered adipose tissue gene expression.
- Late eating increases waketime hunger and decreases 24-h serum leptin
- Late eating decreases waketime energy expenditure and 24-h core body temperature
- Late eating alters adipose tissue gene expression favoring increased lipid storage
- Combined, these changes upon late eating may increase obesity risk in humans
