Eating late at night is bad for us. We could get sick. A study says it increases the risk of obesity. Researchers said eating late makes us feel two times hungrier, so we eat more. When we eat earlier, we are less hungry, so we eat less. Later eaters eat unhealthier food. They also move around less, so they do not burn off calories.

Researchers looked at the eating habits of 16 overweight people. They were healthy. They ate regularly and exercised. They did not drink coffee or alcohol. They did not smoke, or take medicine or drugs. They kept a sleep diary so researchers knew their sleeping times. A researcher said it is better to stop eating at night.
