Why You Should Stop Eating Before Bed if You Want to Lose Weight

September 19, 2015 2 min read

When you're hungry, you should honour your body and eat, right? So if, let's say you have dinner around 6pm, and then by the time it's 9pm and you're calling it a night, you decide to hammer down the rest of the leftovers still sort of warm in the fridge? You'll fill up, put yourself in a much-needed food coma to knock you out for hours and wake up feeling refreshed. Well, while all that sounds great, there's one elephant in the room: weight gain. “Studies tend to show that when food is consumed late at night — anywhere from after dinner to outside a person’s typical sleep/wake cycle — the body is more likely to store those calories as fat and gain weight rather than burn it as energy," explains  Kelly Allison of the University of Pennsylvania, So if you're the type of person who feels the need to make a PB&J after hours, you should think again, especially if you're concerned about weight gain. See, what happens is that those calories you're eating are much more likely to be stored as fat than they would had you eaten that sandwich at lunch, with plenty of time to burn them off into energy as the day went on. Jennifer Van Allen, who writes forThe Washington Post, recently referenced a 2013 study involving 420 obese test subjects. In the study, those that ate before 3pm lost more weight than those who ate after 3pm. “When the participants ate late, they couldn’t metabolize, or burn off, carbohydrates as well as when they ate earlier," Van Allen notes of the study. Are you a regular late-night eater? Source: Elite Daily
