If you are keen to reading novels in the late night and you are feeling that your jeans are becoming tight then don’t e surprised for the reason that it is due to your irregular habit. The reason behind it can be that you may eat junk food late night and sit constantly without any activity.

A new research study from the Northwestern University has recommended that amid healthy adults with habitual sleep period of as a minimum 6.5 hours, belatedly sleep timing was linked with elevated fast food use and lower vegetable eating — for the most part amid men — and also lower physical activity.

The findings illustrate that late sleep timing is linked to the lower body mass index and is not linked with whole caloric eating. On the other hand, it continues linked with poorer diet value and vegetable and dairy eating.

Kelly Glazer Baron, who is the lead author, stated that “Our results help us further understand how sleep timing in addition to duration may affect obesity risk,” Kelly Glazer Baron further added that “It is possible that poor dietary behaviors may predispose individuals with late sleep to increased risk of weight gain.”

The research study group made of 96 healthy adults amid the ages of 18 and 50 years with sleep period of 6.5 hours or further. The research study included 7 days of wrist actigraphy to gauge sleep, food diaries to gauge caloric eating and dietary patterns and SenseWear arm band checking to gauge physical activity. Not bright light melatonin onset was examined in the clinical research unit. Body fat was examined employing double axis absorptiometry (DXA). Data were evaluated employing association and failure analyses controlling for age, sex, sleep period and sleep competence.

The research study has appeared in the journal Sleep.
