Skipping breakfast and eating late at night should not be at the top of anyone’s to-do lists. The reasons behind it are they have metabolic effects, and also put men at higher risk for coronary heart disease.
Over a 16-year research span, male health professionals claimed that 27% of men who regularly skip breakfast are more likely to die, according to Leah Cahill. Another 55% that eat late at night were more likely to die also.
Both results fell shy of statistical significance after adjustment for BMI, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, and also diabetes, reported by [i]Journal of the American Heart Association[/i].
Eric Rimm, ScD said in an interview:
"There's lots of things we know that we can do to reduce our coronary heart disease risk. This is a cheap one, it's a simple message, [and] it can be part of any primary care provider's message to a patient."
Previous studies have demonstrated relationships between skipping meals and excess weight, dyslipidemia, insulin resistance, diabetes, but the possibility it being linked with coronary heart disease has not yet been fully explored.
