Hi Leanne, I can understand
your concern, but you can rest assured,
an old fitness myth, that really should be put to
bed. I'll be happy to quash it once and for
first thing to state, is that our bodies don't
process food differently at any given time of
day. In other
words, calories consumed after 10pm won't make you
gain weight any faster than calories consumed at
8pm. Research shows what matters, is how many
calories you eat, not the time you eat them
fat accumulates when caloric intake exceeds
caloric requirements. Put simply, you'll gain
weight if you eat more calories than you expend,
conversely, you'll lose weight if you eat less
calories than you expend.
reason people find themselves gaining weight
when eating at night is a classic case of what is
known as correlation over
In other words, it's quite commonplace
for people to think eating at night is the cause
of their weight gain. They mistakenly correlate
the time they ate their food with weight gain.
In actuality, it's simply that they ate too
many calories and exceeded their caloric intake
for the day. The time they ate the calories,

don't have a structured meal plan and eat far too
little during the day. This, in turn, leads to
feeling ravenous by evening

calorie treats end up being
why I'm a proponent of having a structured meal
plan. It ensures you don't get hungry and binge
eat. With a structured meal plan, spreading our
meals out throughout the day, as in your case,
you'll maintain stable blood sugar levels,
removing cravings for high sugar, high calorie
foods later on.
