An erratic breakfast time confuses your organs and compromises their function. Using the circadian clock, each organ is programmed to process food for a few hours starting from breakfast. If your breakfast was at 8:00 a.m., then the system works optimally for about 8 to 10 hours. Every time we eat, the entire process of digestion, absorption, and metabolism takes a couple of hours to complete. Even a small bite of food takes an hour or two to be processed. After about a 10-hour window, the gut and metabolic organs will continue to work on your food, but their efficiency slowly goes down as they are not programmed to be open for business 24-7, the clocks in different organs are not efficient. Your gastric juice and gut hormones are produced at a different rate and your digestion slows down, giving you a sense of indigestion or acid reflux.
A late breakfast interferes with other tasks your organs have to accomplish, a late dinner will, too. This time, the disruption is more severe. The same food that would have taken a couple of hours to digest at 6:00pm takes longer to digest at 8:00 because you are outside the optimal 10-hour window for digestion. Your fat making process stays on all the time. If this continues for days, blood glucose continues to rise and reaches the danger zone or prediabetes or diabetes.
