  • I eat around 7 and I never get done hungry but by 10 o’clock I get kinda hungry and I drink a lot of water but it doesn’t really satisfy it

  • Correction:melatonin is produced at night and this tells the pancreas to go to sleep which means stops releasing insulin into blood… And so if you eat late at night your blood sugar will stay high and this is proven to cause cancer or alzaheimers risks to increase

  • Oh thank god!
    I am a mother of two and finally losing the weight (4,7 kg already gone… 50 or so to go?! ^^)
    And I absolutely adore having dinner as soon as the kids are in bed. Like that I can really enjoy the food.

    But till now I thought this will ruin all my hard work during the day

  • My thinking is, if you’re already eating at a calorie deficit, why would it matter if any of those calories were before bed? Like, if your BMR is 2,000cal and you only eat 1,500cal in a day, why would it matter the timing?

  • i think he meant a calorie deficit is when you eat your normal caloric intake for the day, then burn off calories from working out that same day would put you at less calories then your standard caloric intake.
