Study warns of poor eating habits that can cause the body to overheat in cold weather at night in winter.

Research published on the “Scientific Advances” website, supported by the National Institutes of Health, banned eating at night because it causes a high build-up of glucose in the body.

In the study, the researchers divided 19 men and women into two groups and gave them different meal times, with the first group eating their food during the day and the second eating their food at night.

Test results showed that those who ate at night had a 6.4% increase in their glucose levels, which can lead to serious and devastating health problems like diabetes and heart disease.

“If you’re at night, there are things that can affect your glucose levels, one of which is consuming extra calories, high in sugar in the form of super-processed, easy-to-cook foods, and salt,” said Lisa Young, associate professor of nutrition at New York University.

Young said he’s unlikely to burn calories while sleeping, so eating at night can easily lead to weight gain.

The study confirmed that preparing a daytime routine is one of the most important first steps in getting started with healthy eating, and advised to avoid irregular meal times and set a consistent schedule, if applicable.
