Methods: Young people (n = 65) chronotype was determined (Horne-Ostberg questionnaire) and anthropometric measurements were determined (weight, eight, fat percentage and waist circumference). Results: Men with evening chronotype had significantly higher waist circumference (p = 0.03). In women with a percentage of fat < 25% are associated with evening chronotype (p = 0.05). Conclusions: The evening chronotype is associated with higher waist circumference and fat percentage. Chronotype is a new focus for the prevention and treatment of obesity.
