Q. Is there any truth to the idea that if you eat heavily late in the evening, you will gain weight?
A. The research is not conclusive on a clinical effect of late meals, but there are suggestions that there might be one.
“If the calories are exactly the same, it shouldn’t make a difference, but my clinical impression is that people who eat late at night eat more,” said Dr. Louis J. Aronne, director of the comprehensive weight control program at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. They may be eating “an extra meal, if you will, ‘the fourth meal,’ as one ad put it,” Dr. Aronne said. Studies of college students who eat late at night have found that they are more likely to put on weight.
“Eating a big meal just before going to bed has been found in studies to elevate triglyceride levels in the blood for a period of time,” Dr. Aronne said. A higher triglyceride level “has been associated with metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance,” both related to weight gain, he said.
Dr. Aronne suggested a theoretical framework for why late meals may stay with you. “If you ate 500 calories during the day but walked around afterward, your muscles would be competing with your fat cells for the calories and could burn them up as energy for physical activity,” he said. “But if you consume it at bedtime, with no physical activity, the body has no choice but to store the calories away as fat.”我收到林公孚先生轉來的 覺得它可能是偽造的咖啡宣傳 躊躇是否轉登
