Heavy food eating habits after 6 pm cause heart diseases in women

A study report of the American Heart Association’s Scientific Research says that “Heavy food eating habits after 6 pm lead to heart diseases in women. Consuming a higher proportion of daily calories after 6 pm is associated with a greater risk of developing cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack and stroke in women”.

The research, to be presented at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions in Philadelphia in the US evaluated the cardiovascular health of 112 women with an average age of 33 (44 percent Hispanic) by measuring their cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels at the beginning of the study, and one year later.
The researchers, including those from Columbia University from the US, used the American Heart Association’s Life’s Simple 7 measures which represent the heart disease risk factors people can overcome through lifestyle changes such as not smoking, being physically active, eating healthy foods and controlling body weight.

The way in which the researchers conduct the experiment by they kept electronic food diaries by computer or cell phone to each participant, that record what, how much, and when they ate for one week at the beginning of the study, and for one week 12 months later. The researchers used the data from the food diary completed by each woman to determine the relationship between heart health and the timing of when they ate.

They found that while most study participants consumed some food after 6 PM, those who consumed a higher proportion of their daily calories after this time had poorer heart health. The heart health declined with every 1 percent rise in calories consumed after 6 pm, the researchers said. So this eating habit will cause higher blood pressure, higher body mass index, and poorer long-term control of blood sugar.”So far, lifestyle approaches to preventing heart disease have focused on what we eat and how much we eat,” said study lead author Nour Makarem from Columbia University.
