Consuming small amounts of palatable food, i.e., snacking, at various times of the day is a highly prevalent behavior in most modern societies. Chronic rest-phase food intake – especially of high-caloric items – promotes obesity and disrupts endogenous circadian rhythms. Notably, humans and mice are more prone to hedonically driven eating behavior, the overconsumption of palatable food, during the late active/early inactive phase, i.e., the morning in mice, the evening in humans. While the effects of calorie-dense food items in promoting body weight gain are well documented, the metabolic impact of snack timing is far less understood.
