Eating breakfast at this time could reduce heart disease risk

Eating breakfast at an earlier time, specifically before 8:30 a.m., has been associated with a reduced risk of heart disease, according to some studies.

Research suggests that timing of meals may influence cardiovascular health, and breakfast consumption plays a significant role.

According to a Journal of the American College of Cardiology study, people who ate breakfast later had a higher risk of metabolic syndrome, which increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes.

Eating breakfast early may help regulate circadian rhythms, which influence metabolic processes and cardiovascular function.

Additionally, starting the day with a nutritious breakfast can help stabilize blood sugar levels, reduce cravings for unhealthy foods later in the day, and support overall dietary patterns associated with heart health.

While the exact mechanisms behind this association are not fully understood, incorporating a balanced breakfast into your daily routine, ideally before 8:30 a.m., may contribute to a lower risk of heart disease and better metabolic health.

However, individual dietary habits and lifestyle factors should also be considered when assessing cardiovascular risk.
