Diet and sleep

 Modern life involves mistimed sleeping and eating patterns that in experimental studies are associated with adverse health effects including obesity, cardiometabolic outcomes and cancer. Studies on nutrition and cancer in humans have focused on type (e.g. consumption of fruits and vegetables) and quantity of food intake, rather than on timing of eating. In this presentation I will discuss the effect of mistimed eating patterns and sleep in humans and present recent findings showing that adherence to a diurnal eating pattern is beneficial for health.
