  • Evening preference (e.g. more active in the evening, going to bed later at night) was found to correlate to higher BMI.
  • Sleeping less also correlated to higher BMI.
  • Social jetlag (going to bed later and getting up later only on the weekends) correlated with higher BMI in those under age 60.
