As the saying goes, "You are what you eat." But now, more and more research is finding that you're not only what you eat, but when you eat.
A new study out of Brigham and Women's Hospital is adding to that research — and it suggests that you're better off consuming carbohydrates for breakfast than for dinner. The results have particular significance for shift workers — people who work through the night and sleep during the day — who have a greater risk of developing diabetes.
The study will be published this week in the journal, "Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences."
