Timing of food intake predicts weight loss effectiveness

Garaulet M, Gómez-Abellán P, Alburquerque-Béjar JJ, Lee YC, Ordovás JM, Scheer FA. Int J Obes (Lond). 2013 Apr;37(4):604-11.

To determine the effect of timing of eating on weight loss, a study of 420 overweight or obese patients recruited from Spanish nutrition clinics was performed. The authors found that those who ate lunch later tended to lose less weight than those who ate earlier, and carriers of the minor allele of the clock SNP rs4580794 ate their meals later than major allele homozygotes.
