Studies show, it’s not just HOW MUCH you eat but WHEN you eat that affects weight gain. Long story short, here’s why you should eat your BIG meals EARLY and skip late night snacking…

  • People who eat after 8pm have higher Body Mass Indexes (BMI) than those who don’t
  • Calories consumed at night are not processed as efficiently as those during the day
  • Sleep disruption is likely if your stomach is working hard to process food
  • You are likely to eat larger portions later in the day than earlier (Weil Cornell Medical Research)
  • At night, you are most likely eating out of boredom, NOT because you are genuinely hungry

Yesterday, I took my own advice. Here are pics of my meals and snacks throughout the day. Take a week and try it for yourself – you may be surprised by your results!

7:00AM Breakfast

Egg white omelet filled with veggies (no cheese), salsa, fruit topped w/yogurt and granola, oatmeal topped with nuts/raisins/brown sugar, 1 cup coffee

9:30AM Snack

1 medium orange

12:30PM Lunch

Large spinach salad with feta cheese, almonds, raisins, tomato, olive oil/vinegar

3:00PM Snack

1 medium apple

5:30PM Dinner

Small veggie plate w/humus and pita chips
