Eating Late in Evening Associated with Poorer Heart Health in Women

A new study from the US, that will be presented at the American Heart Health Association’s Scientific Sessions 2019, suggests that eating later in the evening, after 6 pm if more specific, is associated with poorer heart health in women.Eating Late in Evening Associated with Poorer Heart Health in Women

For participation in the study, the team of scientists recruited 112 healthy women whose average age was 33 years. The researchers checked the participants’ heart health at the beginning of the study and 1 year after.

During the study period, the participants used dairies to track the amount and type of food, as well as the time of having a meal for one week at the beginning of the study and one week after a year.

The results of the analysis showed that for each 1 per cent increase in calorie intake after 6 p.m., the heart health score declined.

Lead researcher Nour Makarem, Ph.D., an associate research scientist at the Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons, in New York, comments: “These preliminary results indicate that intentional eating that is mindful of the timing and proportion of calories in evening meals may represent a simple, modifiable behavior that can help lower heart disease risk.”
