This study followed 517 men and 635 women. They completed a five-day diet diary. The investigators evaluated caloric intake during the course of the day, and evaluated blood pressure at the age of 43 and again after 10 years.
The results are telling. Those who ate the most calories at breakfast had a 30% decrease in the chances of hypertension. Those who ate the most calories in the late evening had a 55% increase in risk. They also had the greatest rise in systolic and diastolic blood pressure compared to those with the lowest caloric intake in the late evening. They concluded that the later you eat your food, the higher your risk for higher blood pressure.
