“Timing of Eating Study Among Obese Adults”
The randomized, cross-over design study is designed to determine how timing of eating affects weight, adiposity, energy metabolism, and gene expression. Obese participants will be provided isocaloric meals and snacks to be consumed in one of two prescribed eating conditions -- daytime eating and delayed eating.
Behavioral - Eating Condition
Participants will be randomly assigned to eat per the prescribed eating condition for 8 weeks during eating condition 1. They will complete the alternate eating condition for 8 weeks during eating condition 2.
