Here is a study that shows the complexity of obesity. These mice became OBESE WITHOUT consuming any more calories than control mice. They only ate at unnatural times.

There are at least four other studies like this demonstrating that you can fatten mice WITHOUT feeding them any more calories.

Sucks to be a mouse. No idea what an unnatural time is either.

How many are there showing these same results in humans?

So how about you enlighten us with your theory of how weight loss really works? I'd be very interested to hear the explanation.

I guess it\s a good thing no one on here is a mouse.

Mice and humans will not react the same when given the same circumstances.

Just because mice will gain weight eating at certain times doesn't mean humans will. Don't compare yourself to a mouse.

Many studies show that there is a correlation with obesity related disease and night eating and night shift workers. The mechanism is not really known in humans but scientists think it could be the same as what is observed in these mice.

I lost 90 lbs eating all the way up til bed time (11pm - 12am). The difference is I watched my calories, no matter what time of day it was.

This is idiotic.

This statement doesn't apply to everyone... a lot of people on night shift don't eat properly and therefore gain weight. It's how my mother gained all her weight. She was tired all the time from not getting enough sleep and didn't have the energy to cook so she ate crap foods for years. A lot of people do that. With being tired and strapped for time people don't always make the best choices and tend to exercise less.

While on night shift my mother ended up losing almost 100lbs. She made ways to get more sleep and get more exercise in as well as she prepared proper foods.. healthy foods. With an effort night shift workers can lose weight.

Just because you work the night shift doesn't mean you will gain weight.

Meal timing has no affect on weight loss/weight gain as long as the person makes proper choices.

Good thing we have studies on humans showing that nocturnal eating habits aren't detrimental:

Mice don't go to the bathroom when they need to poo.

Could you please cite the studies? Now, I am going on anecdotal evidence here but I have had no problems making gains while working on the night shift.

Whoops SideSteel beat me to it.

Oh. You mean wine, right?

So, I guess these 45 pounds I lost don't mean anything? Guess I should stop eating during my lunch break.

So were the experiment mice as active as the control mice? Or does the study even mention it?

Because, honestly, unless you say yes, I'm not going to bother reading it. Correlation does not equal causation... and not every study is legitimately modeled after the scientific method.

What's an unnatural eating time for a mouse? I don't my mouse getting fat and being bullied by the other mice.
