As well as contributing to weight gain, a new study has suggested that snacking late at night could increase your risk of diabetes and heart disease.
Researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania found that eating late a night raises glucose and insulin levels, both of which are causes of type 2 diabetes.
They also found evidence that poor timing of meals can also affect cholesterol levels which can increase the risk of heart disease or suffering a heart attack.
