    I was always told to eat more food early in the day and less at dinner so you're not overlapping sleep with digestion.

    Well it turns out that those who told you so might be *correct*, even if the reason might not be.



    There's nothing correct about the idea that sleep and digestion shouldn't happen at the same time. In fact, as you're ignoring, it's already been pointed out that this would be pretty much impossible, as digestion takes place over a few days and humans require sleep and food on a schedule that would make separation of the two impossible.

    well, I wouldn't say impossible but certainly improbable, uncomfortable, and unhealthy. That would be some extreme version of IF, though!

    Sure wish I Could sleep better. Feel better in morning fasting than after I eat. Usually don't eat breakfast until noon or a bit after.

    Study made in Germany just published in the The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism

    Discussion

    Our data show that the time of day of food intake makes a difference in humans’ energy expenditure and metabolic responses to meals.
    ...
    We clearlyshow that DIT is 2.5 times higher after breakfast than after dinner.
    ...
    Overall, the diurnal variations in DIT, independent of the calorie content of the meals, imply that the time of food intake is important not only in the prevention of obesity but also in terms of diets for weight loss.

    What even is DIT?
