More in-take of calories earlier in the day and consuming less food at night may also reduce the odds of a heart attack, stroke or other cardiac or blood vessel diseases
"When we really eat our food counts and matters a lot, in addition to what we eat.
Many people, especially adults may routinely skip breakfast, a habit that has become more common nowadays while most people snack throughout the day instead of sitting down for three traditional meals.
When people eat breakfast daily, they're likely to lessen the risk of cardiovascular disease like high cholesterol and elevated blood pressure. And people who skip this morning meal are more likely exposed to sicknesses such as-obesity, poor nutrition and diabetes or high blood sugar.
That's because meal timing may affect health by impacting the body's internal clock. We may not properly process sugars at night unlike during the day, and studies of shift workers have linked this schedule with a greater risk of obesity and heart disease than a typical day job.
"We know from studies of population that eating breakfast is related to lower weight and healthier diet, along with lower risk of cardiovascular disease.
A healthy diet is heavy on fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, poultry and fish, according to the guidelines. Eating well also means limiting red meat, salt and foods high in added sugars.
Scheming out what to eat ahead of time, particularly for busy people who eat on the go, can help create a diet that's better for heart health. "Planning ahead and making healthy, carry-on foods is important. "This could be a homemade smoothie or whole grain muffin or cereal bar for breakfast; packaging sandwich or leftovers for those times when time is tight."
Advance thought can also help people eat the right amount of food throughout the day and eat at the right time.
"Night time eating is quite common and an easy way to add unnecessary calories and pack on the pounds over time because people snack when in front of TV, computer and tablet screens."
"Once dinner is finished, the kitchen should be closed. If your schedule is crazy and you cannot get to dinner until later in the evening, then eat light at night."
