Resumen: Objective: To study the association of meal patterns and timing with central obesity to identify the best dietary strategies to deal with the increasing obesity prevalence. Design: A cross-sectional study performed on data from a representative sample of the Spanish population. Height and waist circumference were measured using standardized procedures and waist-to-height ratio (WHtR) was calculated. The sample was divided into those without central obesity (WHtR< 0.5) and those with central obesity(WHtR >= 0.5). Setting: ANIBES ('Anthropometric data, macronutrients and micronutrients intake, practice of physical activity, socioeconomic data and lifestyles in Spain') Study. Subjects: Adults aged 18-64 years (n 1655; 798 men and 857 women). Results: A higher percentage of people ate more than four meals daily in the group without central obesity and those with central obesity more frequently skipped the mid-afternoon snack than those without. Breakfasts containing > 25% of total energy intake and lunches containing > 35% of total energy intake were associated with increased likelihood of central obesity (OR = 1.874, 95% CI 1.019, 3.448; P< 0.05 and OR= 1.693, 95% CI 1.264, 2.268; P< 0.001, respectively). On the contrary, mid-morning snacks and mid-afternoon snacks containing > 15% of total energy were associated with decreased likelihood of central obesity (OR= 0 . 477, 95% CI 0.313, 0.727; P < 0.001 and OR= 0.650, 95% CI 0.453, 0.932; P < 0.05, respectively). The variety of cereals, wholegrain cereals and dairy was higher in the population without central obesity. Conclusions: Our results suggest that 'what and when we eat' should be considered dietary strategies to reduce central obesity.
