    Night eating affects 9 percent of women and 7.4 percent of men according to a new study from Denmark. Obese women who got up in the middle of the night to eat gained an average of 11.4 pounds in six years compared to 2 pounds for those who did not get up to eat.

    Night eating was not associated with later weight gain, except among already obese women according to the study.

    Night eating was not associated with weight gain in men.

    The study involved 1050 women and 1061 men who had been examined in 1982-83, and again in 1993-94.

    Subjects working night shifts were excluded.
