Eating Late at Night: The New Science of Why It’s Making You Fat

Eating Late at Night: The New Science of Why It’s Making You Fat: Eating calories late at night may make you gain weight and cause health problems. Here's why you should eat dinner earlier and avoid late-night snacking.

At the doctor's office yesterday I found this interesting article from Reader's Digest May 2016.  We thought we'd give it a go since it works well with Anthony's work schedule.

Day 1: Did pretty well, eating dinner at breakfast time (around noon), breakfast for a snack later, lunch at suppertime.  Or in other words, I ate a big breakfast, a small lunch, and a medium supper.  I would have been fine except that late at night I felt sick to my stomach and the only thing that would assuage it was a large serving of corn chips and a large glass of juice.

I think this will take some time for my body to adjust, but I'm going to give it a go for a while.


  1. T and I recently started eating more Mediterranean foods, which meant our sugar intake decreased significantly. For the first week I was getting headaches off and on, so we got some dark chocolate covered nuts and fruits to help ease into consuming less sugar. It seems to be working since I haven't had any headaches this week.

  2. I had just discovered Bark chocolate when I had to go off chocolate. I am not getting as many headaches as I did in the weeks before starting the new food rotation, so I must have been eating something that did not agree with me.
