But, does meal timing really matter for losing weight? Let’s find out! What is Meal Timing? Meal timing, also known as nutrient timing, is the planned intake of certain macronutrients at certain times of day to promote health, boost workout performance, and/or enhance body composition. Meal timing alone won’t cause you to lose or gain weight, or dramatically increase muscle mass, unless you make changes to your diet, Tills emphasizes.

But some research suggests that our bodies really utilize calories more effectively when consumed in the early morning rather than the night. This indicate a technique that could be useful.

More evidence suggests it may not be all about what you eat, but when you eat that will help you control your weight. People who finished eating all their meals by early afternoon had smaller. Furthermore, eating during the day also leads to greater weight loss, although scientists are not sure what causes it.

Probably it’s because those who miss their breakfast tend to snack more in. The Critical Importance of Meal Timing for Weight Loss There have been two main changes in dietary habits from the 1970s (before the obesity epidemic) until today.
