Truth About Night Time Eating and Fat Loss

Late night eating

For decades, many Americans have believed that eating food late at night is bad for you. But, if you try to pin someone down to find out precisely why eating late at night is a bad thing, you probably won’t come up with anything substantive. Most people who think that eating late at night is bad hold their beliefs for the following reasons:
  • “Your metabolism slows down late at night.”
  • “All of your energy goes to digestion so you won’t sleep well.”
  • “Your body doesn’t need calories at night, so they turn to fat.”
As it turns out, these superstitions are not true – at least, they’re not true enough to hold water in the argument. Though the Mayo Clinic advises to stop eating at least two hours before bedtime, you don’t have to totally cut nighttime snacking habits from your life in order to lose weight!
