Night Eating and Weight
Night Eating Doesn’t Make Us Fat
Researchers at the Human Nutrition Research Center say we have been mislead for years into thinking that eating late at night makes you put on weight.
They point out that our bodies don’t stop working just because we go to sleep. In fact, the average person burns about 400 calories while they sleep.
Scientific research shows that when you eat has no bearing on your weight – it is what and how much you eat that counts.
The important thing about weight loss or weight gain is how many calories you eat, not when you eat them.
For healthy sustained weight loss, choose a diet that follows the Food Pyramid Guidelines and offers diet support, exercise advice and weight loss motivation.
