It’s common to hear the phrase “don’t eat after 8 p.m.” when you’re trying to lose weight. But when you think about it in terms of calories, the math doesn’t work out. As long as you stick to your goal and eat fewer calories than you burn, you should lose weight. Here’s what you should know about eating late at nigh.

Ask the Dietitian: Is it Too Late to Eat After 8 p.m.? It’s common to hear the phrase “don’t eat after 8 p.m.” when you’re trying to lose weight. But when you think about it in terms of calories, the math doesn’t work out. Many people worry about gaining weight when eating later than a particular time.

One common suggestion is to not eat after 8 p.m., but advice about eating at night. You Can Eat After 8 P.M. By Dr.

Nancy Snyderman Wednesday, May 06, 2009 Robert Decelis / Getty It doesn’t matter what time of day you eat. The truth: There is little evidence to support the fact that eating after 8 p.m. causes weight gain. However, you may be more likely to snack mindlessly in the evenings while watching television. Eat regular meals and snacks throughout the day.

Eating late at night can cause weight gain, according to a study reported by the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine. A June 2017 report in Penn Medicine News showed that participants not only gained weight, but they. Eat a meal every 4 to 5 hours after that. ask whether it will pay for this before you start.

After your doctor and dietitian help you sketch out your meals, you may want to make out a daily. 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. We know because every year, we ask thousands of new Precision Nutrition clients about their biggest nutrition challenges. “I don’t know what to eat” doesn’t even crack the top 10. And year after year, people tend to have the same food frustrations, no matter what new “diet revolution” or.

The first step toward good health in your senior years is to eat right. “You have to feed your body good nutrition for it to run like it’s supposed to run. too. Nuts. Full of omega-3s.

Although a starvation duration of three days in adults and one day in juveniles (from the last meal, not from hospital entry) has been a common trigger for starting nutrition, it seems that a more prudent guideline would be to start nutrition “as soon as it is practicably feasible given the patient’s condition.”

  • Why doesn’t he ever address the A CORN IS GMO fact?
    I don’t understand how he can suggest corn without making a clear emphasis on NON-GMO corn only.

    I wouldn’t touch a white potato if you paid me. Brown rice should also be clearly stated. Not refined rice. The difference is notable.
    Come McDougall, you’re the fact genius here hon.
    Sweet potatoes, yams, brown rice and NON-GMO corn.
    See that wasn’t so difficult.

  • Whom did you learn your meditation through again? I would love to continue my journey in fixing my body with good meditation advice. Thanks

  • Japan is not a third world country and 22% of adults in Japan smoke (not 60% as stated by Dr McDougall). Why would he say that ( 26:15)? Makes me now wonder what other data is incorrect.

  • I never tire of listening to Dr. McDougall. I find it so inspiring that even after all these years, he’s still continues to be so passionate about his message about a starch based diet. I am so grateful for his work!!

  • Fantastic interview with my very favorite doctor! Gianna is an excellent interviewer too! I love what Dr. McDougall said about MS (Multiple Sclerosis). My husband died at age 41 due to MS. I wish we’d known this information in 1980 when he was first diagnosed. We always grew a garden and ate lots of fresh vegetables, and then we changed our diets a little further, after hearing about Dr. Roy Swank. But it wasn’t enough. (We tried to eat what we thought was “low fat”.) Changing from beef to chicken is not enough. The drugs that were prescribed didn’t help, but they made his face blow up like a chipmunk. It wasn’t until after he died that I discovered Dr.McDougall. (I used to listen to his radio show!) I would debate with my former mother-in-law about the relationship of diet to MS. She’d argue, “The MS Society says it has nothing to do with food.” Like most people, she was brainwashed, bless her heart. PLEASE, everyone. Listen to this man. He speaks the truth. BTW, I’m now 66, my blood pressure is normal, my cholesterol is 112 (that is not a typo my doctor was amazed), and I take NO medication. Oh, I and I have to add this. If you need more information or plenty of easy, yummy recipes, go to his website, it’s all free.:-)

  • Be VERY careful adding sweetener when on a low carb/carnivore diet. Although it won’t spike your blood sugar, your body cannot tell the difference when it senses the sweetness in your mouth so it has the SAME insulin response to sugar, and insulin is the fat-storage hormone.

  • Agree with most everything in this interview except vaccines, though I more prescribe to the Nutritarian Diet. At least Dr. McDougall admitted he is not an expert in this area and was brave enough to comment on the issue, but I disagree that there are any benefits to the Hep B vaccine in babies unless they are at risk and the World Health Organization just admitted that HPV kills more women than cervical cancer does!

  • LOVE this! I’m keeping to watch again. So I ordered six boxes of the carnivore bars so I could get free shipping, lol, and at first could not stomach the taste, too hard core for me I guess. But I figured out a way to eat them by making sweet or savory spreads. I mix one bar with 2tbsp melted ghee and then stir in either cocoa, gingerbread spice or pumpkin pie spice and a small touch of sweetener. It’s like eating frosting out of the jar. I also made a savory one with herbs de Provence and had it over duck breast, so good!

  • I’m struggling to find what works for me. I’m focused on getting my fasting glucose down the only thing that seems to do that is extended fasting. I’m trying to do a high fat carnivore when not fasting. It just seems that when I’m eating even high fat carnivore I cant seem to get my BG under 100. ��. I’m guessing stress is pushing that (at least i hope it is).

  • No no no, everybody in Europe doesn’t smoke, Gianna. Our regulations are much stricter than in the US of A. Besides that: good interview gotta love dr. McDougall… His advice (that I have followed for 15 years or so) cured my Lupus completely would never eat any other way.

  • Love this video, Sarah! Great information, and she’s dead on with each person being unique and having unique needs. I will get a CGM soon.

  • McDougall recalls his “fondest memories” of the “love of his life, Mary” and he lovely speaks about cars, condos, planes & boats. I hope she picked the colors. Is he the epitome of an egocentric fool?

  • I have tried to live off of just whole food plant sources of protein with excellent whole grains and beans. Such a restriction for me after about 6 months effects me seriously and negatively. I need to add back at least 50-60 grams a combo of 1/3 pea, hemp, chia, 1/3 soy isolate, and 1/3 whey (morning) or casein (evening) protein powder to feel right again. Perhaps it may be my genetic makeup

  • The number one thing I love about plant based doctors is… they ain’t trying to sell you anything!!!!!
    No concoctions, no pills, vitamins, plans for health or other bullshit to line their pockets. Just advice to help and make you well aware of the filth causing your illnesses.

  • Great guest, great interview, I love Dr McDougall. I am doing his Starch diet and he has improved my health and my life greatly. Thank you very much dear Dr McDougall and dear Gianna ����������

  • Hello mam….. i like ur video and thanks for knowledge…. mam i want to a netropathy course pls eski details dijiye if possible…kya ye cource hindi me kiya jaa sakta he..pls reply��

  • I’m not even trying to be a wise ass here. The doc is right when I think of China and Japan I absolutely think of white rice it’s evident they have eaten this for a long time. But I also think of seafood as being their staple. Is there evidence that this is just a misconception. They don’t really eat it that much?

  • In 2014, after watching Forks Over Knives, I failed at a vegan diet after 3 months of full dedication. I didn’t even try to go back until I came across Dr. Mcdougall’s Starch Solution talk on YouTube. NONE of the other WFPB doctors (even to this day) explain well enough the most important foods for people that require high calorie intake. I’m an aircraft equipment mehanic and I will say that without Dr. McDougall’s specific message, virtually every manual laborer would not be able to maintain a WFBP diet.

  • Just to clarify, vaccines are cultured in human, cow, monkey, and chickens. Their DNA fragments can fuse with ours. If the conversation is about being healthy by not eating meat and dairy, then we need to avoid injections of these things. I’m plant based, and our diet is our preventative medicine from dangerous diseases.

  • I love it when plant based experts understand that health goes beyond whats inside us.. whats the point of being healthy in a dead world that’s hell for all animals including us.

  • Corn is so full of glyphosate today, it is so bad for your microbiome. I won’t touch the stuff anymore. Not any grain / cereal for that matter. Just eat vegetables, beans, fruit, nuts and seeds. Plenty to choose from there.

  • Thank you guys for sharing this wonderful teaching program ��������������������������������������������

  • The good doctor is looking so well and hearty! YAY! Great man who works so hard to get the word out to EAT THE STARCHY PLANTS people! Works for me! <3!

  • which one of  your grandchildren are you going to “say goodbye” to, to  save the earth?  too many people?  aren’t all those horrible abortions helping your cause dr. mcfuddyduddy…Godless people, why are you worried about your health?  shouldn’t you be thinking about how to go quicker? I mean, to save the earth, of course…

  • Dr Mcdougall is so smart, passionate and so handsome. No one holds a candle to this man. I also think Mary is smart and beautiful. What a power couple

  • Gianna Simone! — ���� He said that if we owned a racehorse, we’d feed it well, and the Gladiators were “people who were owned” and therefore fed an optimal diet. HE is INDEED then saying that we should eat like slaves. Gianna?

  • No McDougall, we can’t do “the food thing tomorrow.” we don’t grow enough plants. Those that we grow used Roundup, a killer-poison highly modified to kill resistant weeds. Corn is modified to tolerate the more potent reformulated Roundup. The business world and agricultural world and product distribution chains are fixed and limited, not capable of fulfilling the McDougall fantasy. Imagine the high cost of plant food if we all switched to them “overnight” like McDougall advocates? His vision is poorly thought out.

  • This video was so informative. I’m new to wearing my CGM and this is exactly what I needed to here. Thank you to you both. Keep it up girl. I love following your journey via IG posts and you tube video.

  • We grew up in a family based on starch diet but getting to the west and eating western rich families diet, we so silly changes in our lives and bodies
    I’m glad to be back in eating healthy food starch and happy �� vegan

  • Love the info!! Been following your videos from the beginning and very appreciative of all you share-but please, reconsider the amount of commercials. A few is fine and expected. But I could barely follow the conversation for all the commercials that felt like they were every 3 minutes:(

  • before i found people like mcdougall i was advised to eat bone brought, leave the flouting fat because that was extra healthy. i listened to them. If i think back about it i puke.

  • Great interview, I soak in every thing Dr. McDougall has to say. Back to basics shouldn’t have to be taught in this generation, how ever the world has gotten so far off in so many area’s, that here is this wonderful Dr. teaching us again what God said we should follow in our eating. thank you Dr. McDougall and Gianna for this vidio.

  • I couldn’t believe the hate, projection and negativity directed towards Dr. McDougall after another interview a few months ago. I watched it and saw nothing but a sharp, witty man who’s passion was infectious. Here he is a bit more subdued but you can still see the same personality and brilliant funny guy!

    After seeing that hate directed I decided to try my best to completely step out of the debate between wfpb and keto/carnivore diets. I just want to learn more and focus on my own health.

  • I love how good quality your interviews are:) and John McDougall have changed very much my life.. I started plant based diet 3 years ago, and learned very much from his webinars with Gustavo Tolosa:)

  • I have recently switched from keto/very low carb to carnivore, and have been aiming for higher protein and lower fat, together with extended fasting. Before the switch, my glucose and insulin (tested) where great. Now that I am carnivore, my fasting blood glucose has gone from 75-90 to 90-115 on a regular basis. Some have said that this is physiological insulin resistance, and therefore, not a problem, and others have said that it is physiological insulin resistance but it IS a problem and needs to be fixed. In this video, I am hearing that it may be a problem and it may not. I just ordered my CGM and I am interested to see how that goes. I have been eating 124g protein and 75g fat (I still have a few pounds of body fat to lose, but I am close to goal), but I want to try lowering protein to 100g and increasing fat to 100g. This flies in the face of everything I have learned and believed about higher fat not being good for weight loss, so it is “dogmatically” hard for me to believe that it might work for me. One of the things that was mentioned near the end of this video was to increase carbs to deal with the higher blood glucose. What was not mentioned was carb addiction. I am a carb addict, and I am not willing to start eating carbs again. I want to stay carnivore, and I feel good doing this, except for the higher blood glucose. Start eating honey, like Dr. Saladino? That would open a whole can of carbs for me! I am hoping that decreasing protein and increasing fat will be a solution. Any thoughts?

  • On the fish, Dr. Esselstyn also say that fish produces more TMAO, which is a huge negative for the endotheliel cells than other animal proteins. Thank you for this interview!

  • So much grains and crops are given to live stock, and if they’re grass fed why not grow plants instead of grass? Why not cultivate the Land and grow crops?
    There is WAY more than enough resources to support 7 billion or even 20 billion people on this planet. We need to become more efficient.

  • Great interview! You changed my life Dr. McDougall. One thing I’ve noticed is that our society is so overweight, it’s becoming the norm and thin people are looked at as unhealthy. I’ve lost weight and but could still stand to lose 10 lbs. my friends think I’m too thin and one even put her arm around and said “honey, you need some protein.” I’m the only one of my senior friends not on meds and can run circles around them.

  • Please post some food recipes you all have that are vegan. I am diabetic and need to change my diet for good and get off the meds. Thank you

  • What a great story. He fell in love at first sight it took 3 weeks to get a date, then 6 weeks later they were engaged! Adorable. ‘Marry a happy person, or you’ll never make her happy’. So true good advice. I’ve been a fan of Dr. McDougall’s since his first book came out in the 70’s or early 80’s. I LOVE Dr. McDougall, he shoots from the hip and tells the truth! They ARE criminals! This is a great interview!

  • I enjoyed the interview, however it leaves me wondering about the good doctor’s views when he starts making fun of the body shape/type of other “experts” in the nutrition business who advocate eating the things this nice doctor does not agree with. Hey, whatever works for you. To me everything (real food, not junk) in measure combined with what I have appetite for, should work and be just fine. nothing wrong with butter, cheese, meat. everything in measure. oh, I forgot fish. love my sardines. Never had any problems with constipation. Dr. McDougall seems like a nice man, but just a bit over the top.
