A study in the International Journal of Obesity that tracked 420 obese people during a 20-week weight loss program who followed a Mediterranean diet.
Those who ate their main meal early (before 3 PM) lost almost five more pounds than those who had their main meal later (after 3 PM) even though both groups consumed the same number of calories and exercised the same amount.
Researchers have a theory that eating later can influence circadian rhythms that affect metabolism.
