The study aims to evaluate the association between body composition/psychological well-being with meal intake behavior such as eating fast, snacking after dinner, dinner within 2 h before sleep. This cross-sectional study includes n=3066 participants aged 19–89 who had participated in an annual health checkup in 2015. BMI, Waist circumference (WC) and the World Health Organization (WHO)-5 Well-Being Index were assessed to determine. The meal intake behavior were assessed with a modified questionnaire based on focused on metabolic syndrome in Japan. In addition, the relation with BMI/WC/psychological well-being and meal intake behavior by controlling age, smoking, alcohol drinking, exercise habit, medication and sleep condition were assessed by multiple regression analysis. Having a short lunch time, preferring salty taste, snacking after dinner and dinner within 2 h before sleep were positively associated with BMI, WC and WHO-5 score after adjusting for all confounders. Although eating vegetable and fruits were not independent of BMI, both are positively associated with WHO-5 score. The present data demonstrate that adjusting meal intake behavior could be helpful in preventing psychological distress as well as obesity.
