Geographically Correct: Healthy by day, unhealthy by night
It's no secret the U.S.—and increasingly other countries—have a problem with obesity. Part of it is what we eat and how many calories we think it has (often far more than suspect), but another is when we eat it. Food consumed later in the day tends to be less healthy, and skipping a good breakfast portends an even unhealthier day.
The infographic linked above illustrates the what and when of global eating habits. Green swells dominate the day, but unhealthy midnight snacks blossom after dark. Think about that on your next trip to the fridge.
