Your stomach is empty after 5 hours and the liver starts to self-feed. Never let 5 hours pass w/o having a little something to eat. Have a low carb something before going to bed and eat within one hour of waking up.

I believe that saying, Never eat after 6pm to be one of the biggest myths ever.
I lost over 100 lbs and have kept it off and I eat after 6pm all the time. I make the right choice of course. I'm not chowing down on a cheesburger or cake, I have either 1% cottage cheese, fat free Greek yogurt or a protein shake. A small amount of protein will satisfy your hunger and prevent some muscle loss during the long period between dinner and breakfast.

So....we should set our alarms to wake us up to feed after 5 hours sleep? Less our livers self-cannibalize?

Oh man, people, please stop giving advice unless you have peer reviewed scientific backing. "Stop the insanity!"

Eat once or 50 times a day. Eat all calories at 9pm, it does not matter. Do what you prefer, you cannot manipulate your metabolism in less than 24 hours with food.
Consume whatever foods you prefer, whenever you prefer to consume them, while ensuring nutrient sufficiency and meeting caloric goals.

Hell the romans thought it a sign of gluttony to eat more than once a day.

No need to be rude, mate. Your 'diablo' name seems appropriate. Maybe Odioso Diablo would be more suitable for you.

Perhaps you'd be better off visiting ADA.com (American Diabetes Association's site) if you're looking for confirmation of what everyone who took a health class in school learned. Mayo Clinic is another great site to search for verification of facts.

Space your meals evenly. Evenly spacing out your meals and snacks throughout the day will help keep your blood sugar levels stable. General guidelines say to wait at least 2 hours (but no more than 5 hours) between meals and snacks during the day. Eating at regular intervals will help to prevent your blood sugar level from going either too high or too low.

No need to attack after stating a fact. Thanks, I have a Ph.D. in nutritionSmile

Real world research does not support the hypothesis that eating lots of small meals results in weight loss. Americans do not need to be encouraged to eat lots of snacks. 80% of excess calories in this country already come from snacking.

Of course, eating a moderate or low carb diet means you won't have that huge rush of blood sugar to try to control by frequent eating. A lot of diabetics struggle with the immoderately high carb diet recommended by their association and do not improve until they begin to eat a more moderate diet.

The practice of eating regular meals is a new one for our species. Hunter gatherers just ate big meals when they had food and went looking for food when they had none.

What matters in weight loss is finding a program you can stick with. One size fits all cookie-cutter plans work for hardly anybody. Weight loss will result from sticking to a plan that means you burn more calories than you consume.
