Holiday leftovers are still lingering in our fridges, and technically the New Year doesn’t start until the 31st, so we’re all still over eating right? I mean, it’s fine to overindulge, it’s the holidays! We’ll lose that weight in a week.

Wrong. It turns out that overindulging actually hurts you in more ways than simply gaining weight. A new study conducted by researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, says that eating too much, or even too late, disturbs the molecules and proteins that regulate your body’s metabolism.

Basically, eating a lot can upset your internal “food clock”, causing you to feel more hungry at times when you actually aren’t, which causes overeating. The results of this study can lead to help scientists understand why obesity is more common is people who are up all night rather than those who sleep and rise early.
