There is intense interest in the relationship between meal/snack timing, inter-meal time intervals, and related metabolic and weight effects. Recent research provides new insights into the importance not just of what we eat, but also when we eat for glucose control, energy expenditure, and metabolic health. These insights are of clinical relevance given the high prevalence of obesity, T2D, late night eating, breakfast skipping, short fasting durations, irregular meal times, shift work and sleep and circadian disturbances.
