When it comes to preventing a heart attack, it’s not what you eat–it’s when!

According to a new study presented at the European Society of Cardiology’s annual meeting in Rome, people who eat dinner after 7 p.m. seriously increase their odds of one day having a heart attack. Researchers even found that eating dinner late had a more significant impact on raising overnight blood pressure than the amount of salt in your diet, when you eat breakfast or the types of food you eat overall.

“If we eat late at night, the body essentially remains on high alert as during the day, rather than relaxing for sleep,” explains study author Ebru Ozpelit. “We must have a small dinner and it mustn’t be later than 7 p.m. in the evening.”

So don’t make fun of people who eat dinner at 4:30 p.m., they might just be healthier than you.
