The ‘Body clock’ plays an important role in regulating normal sleep and metabolism. A study by Illinois researchers, who studied 2 groups of mice, one that was fed a regular diet and one that was fed a high fat diet, suggests that eating a diet rich in high fat foods may disrupt the normal ‘Body clock’. This shows the complex relationship between sleep and the metabolic function of the human body.
