EATING AT NIGHT AND WEIGHT GAIN

Eating at night leads to weight gain/ less weight loss. This has been debated time and time over and over again. Some schools of thought believe that eating at anytime does not actually matter, but what actually matters is ensuring that the amount of food you eat in is less than the amount of energy burnt per day.

For me anyway, i would say i disagree, to an extent. The calorie deficit matters quite alright, but you stand to gain more weight when you take in the calories at night.

Let’s take for example, your last meal of the day is supposed to be a 600calorie meal. When you take that 600 calorie meal by like 5pm in the evening, you definitely are not going to sleep immediately. You do some house work, cleaning, and some more walking around before finally going to bed.

Now when you take in the same 600 calorie meal by say ten pm or eleven, most definitely, you would feel tired, it’s almost time for bed. You either go straight to the television or to bed. Thus all the calories you took in are all going to be stored.

For some other people they love snacking at night. One of my patients used to snack at midnight, biscuits, drinks, every silly thing you can think of. That’s a sure way to gain weight.

Also, by ensuring that you don’t eat after 7pm, you are most likely cutting off more calories than you would have eaten normally. For me, most times, after eating breakfast i eat lunch by 3 to 4 pm, and by the time i get home, its 7pm and i can’t eat again., so most times i end up cutting off the extra amount of calories i would have eaten that day.

I would suggest if you can, try to eat your last meal before 7pm or around that time, so that you won’t feel hungry during the night. Try not eating after 7pm, it helps.

  1. Great post…
    It is common sense that when you eat at the end of a day …all of those calories are going to snuggle up to you and get comfy.

    Air-popped popcorn-no-fat is one alternative if you must snack.

    Goldfish are or were on the top of weight watchers if you must snack foods also.

    Unless you are a very active person in your sleep or have lengthy sexual activities before bed…I would advise to lock the kitchen up after 6-7.

    Remember that the desire to snack is a habit you created which means that you can overcome it also.

    Have a very good day!

  2. oh men! i eat at night o! but i’ll try to stop it though. and your evaluation is so true. but what if you haven’t eaten much all day? can’t you still eat at night?

  3. thanks for visiting my blog. and also thanks a lot for the advice. but i have to take it the opposite way. i’ve been wanting to put on weight, so i guess i’ll have to eat more at night

  5. Once again, i feel like you’re beating me on the head Diva…in recent times, i’ve eaten at any hour of the day, been staying up very later and other days, i’ve just gone without food whole day…ok i need to make changes! Ish

  6. lol. You are not that heavy girl. Since the cabbage thing did not work i advice that you just reduce your meals, don’t skip meals, don’t starve, just reduce the content. then you could try changing your dinner to just fruits, and take it before 7pm, take ten glasses of water each day.

    for motivation, you could join a site called:

    Its an indian site but you wold learn a lot there, and meet several people with same goals etc.
