Americans eat up to 15 hours a day, study says

The Los Angeles Times reports a study by researchers at the Salk Institute in La Jolla “that detailed the consumption patterns of just over 150 nondieting, non-shift-working people in and around San Diego for three weeks,” showed “that a majority of people eat for stretches of 15 hours or longer most days – and fast for fewer than nine hours a night.” The study suggests that “Americans’ erratic, round-the-clock eating patterns…have probably contributed to an epidemic of obesity and Type 2 diabetes.”
