Fact or Fiction?

Eating at night is a bad idea and can even make you fat?

FICTION. Bro science and another myth of those fake fitness gurus. Eating at night as no negative impact whatsoever. It is not « worse » to eat at night vs in the morning. Even though you are going to bed ( and yes, the digestive system does slow down), you are not more susceptible to gain fat during that time. This does not mean that you should go eat a large pizza right before going to bed! The choice of your nutrients still matter and you should eat something that is healthy and filling. We recommend eating a source of fat combined with protein (Slow digestion + increased recovery). As an example, having a protein shake with nuts or Greek Yogurt with some almond butter. So do not starve yourself if you want to eat before going to bed. I myself, can’t sleep on an empty stomach.

 

To Summarize : Do not refrain from eating at night, but still keep your calories in check.
