Eating at night is only a myth. It doesn't matter when you take the calories in in a 24 hour period, it's still all about calories in versus calories out.

However, if you're eating large portions at night it may be because you're starving yourself durring the day. Try eating more often and more food durring the dayto combat hunger at night. If you're eating out of boredom then that's just a habbit you'll have to break. You could eat vegetable or other low calorie items if you get the munchies and aren't really hungry.

well, it is a myth that eating late at night will cause more of a weight gain than eating in the afternoon, but eating late at night will cause you to gain weight easily because you will not burn off as much calorie in the night than in the afternoon since you use more energy to work in the afternoon than at night. Nighttime, you will mostly rest and sleep so you won't be using as much calorie as in the afternoon, so you will gain weight more easily. You can eat at night but eat it in a smaller portion and eat something light like a salad or somethingSmile

So let me get this right (Koko), you are telling me that eating something at night will make me gain weight when its generally accepted that weight gain/loss i all about calories in / out in a day?

As far as I remember it doesn't really matter when you are eating as long as you stay below the set amount of calories a day.

Further more by eating at night/before you go to bed you, give your body something to work with through out the night, therefore preventing the body from taking resources from fx muscles.

Not eating for 10-11 hours (8 pm to 7 am) doesn't really seem healthy in my mind.
So you want people to eat a salad before going to bed? how much does that give your stomach to work with? I usually just eat some tuna as a snack (gives me great sense of satiety).

Please keep in mind all comments are made from knowledge gained from the web/books (no actual education within the field of nutrition).

The nutrisionist at the gym said that that it is reccomended to stip consuming food within 2 hours of going to bed. basically because you will not be burning it off like you do during the day (the calories out portion)

It is also reccomended to eat most of your carbs for the day in the morning to fuel you body for optimum calorie burn throughout the day!

Overall, I think everything is about moderation!!! Smile
