Studies on the impact of when we eat on metabolic health, also called chrono-nutrition, are on the rise in the past few years. Chrono-nutrition is very relevant as our temporal dietary patterns are changing. Changes in temporal eating patterns could be due to a rise in people working in shifts, people consuming more meals outside the home and overall eating patterns having become more irregular, including more breakfast skipping and night-time eating. Temporal eating patterns are a possible modifiable risk factor for cardio-metabolic diseases.
Many of the metabolic processes in our body follow a 24hour pattern, also called a circadian pattern. Disruption of these circadian patterns or misalignment between the timing of eating and endogenous circadian systems can have adverse health effects, including impaired cardio-metabolic health.
This presentation will report on findings and insights on epidemiological evidence of meal timing on cardio-metabolic health, including type 2 diabetes and time-restricted eating.
What will I gain from watching this webinar?
- Gain insights into the health effects of meal timing
- Look at the influence of time-restricted feeding on type 2 diabetes management
- Understand the adverse health effects of disrupted sleep.
