Well, trust me, late night eating is one of the worst habits you can form! When your body gets ready to sleep, and during sleep, everything slows down—including your metabolism. Your body stops working to convert calories to energy because sleeping doesn’t require much energy. So, what happens to those calories in your “innocent” bed time snack? They land on your belly, hips, and thighs in the form of fat!
Late night eating can make a difference of 5 to 10 lbs in a year. Add that 5 to 10 lbs. a year for a few years and it could be the reason that you weigh what you weigh.
Our food needs at least 2 hours of digestion time before we go to sleep (3 or 4 would be ideal - especially if we’ve eaten meat). Digestion takes a lot of work for our bodies - which is why, after we eat an especially large meal, all that we want to do is nap. If we cut back on late night eating and start eating breakfast (smoothies) we would be more energetic in the morning. (Most late night eaters have a hard time getting up in the mornings because their bodies had to work so hard while they were sleeping.). This one simple change could make the difference of 5-10 lbs. a year.
If you do need a late night snack, have some fruit. Apple sauce,Watery fruits like apple, pear, berries are in and out of your stomachs in 20 minutes.
