Meal timing affects glucose tolerance, substrate oxidation and circadian-related variables: A randomized, crossover trial.

Background/Objectives:Timing of food intake associates with body weight regulation, insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance. However, the mechanism is unknown. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of changes in meal timing on energy-expenditure, glucose-tolerance and circadian-related variables.Subjects/Methods:Thirty-two women (aged 24±4 years and body mass index 22.9±2.6 kg m-2) completed two randomized, crossover protocols: one protocol (P1) including assessment of […]
