You've probably heard this many times, "it's bad to eat late", "don't eat before bed", "eat lightly later in the day". The fact is, this is all true. I've done an extensive amount of research on this topic and would like to share my findings with you.
It's true that we each are different, different metabolisms, different body types, different genes, etc. But, the met
abolism slows down as the day progresses. This is why it isn't wise to eat late at night.
From my research, i've learned about many different types of eating plans. I've found that just because an eating plan works for you, it doesn't mean it will work for someone else. Our bodies are all made differently, there's nothing we can do about it. But, there is a way to acheive optimal digestion that works for your specific bodily needs.
First of all, you should always make sure to eat your biggest meal in the afternoon. Why? because this is the time that our metabolisms are at their peak. This means that whatever you eat at this time, whether it's a big or small meal, will have enough time to fully digest before you go to sleep. Secondly, exercising a few hours after your meal will help to burn those calories and make sure it doesn't turn to fat.
I'm not saying there has to be a specific way to eat, all I'm saying is that as the day goes on, reduce your calorie intake and make sure not to eat just before bed. You don't want to eat at this time because this is the time your digestive system is the slowest. If you eat, that food is NOT going to digest properly and will unfortunately turn into fat.
Speaking from experience, I know it's difficult at first to change your normal routine, but once you keep doing it, it will come naturally to you. So again, what you want to do is eat your biggest meal in the afternoon, because that's the time your metabolism is at it's highest. Later in the day, you can have a low-calorie protein shake, this is especially effective for a post-workout meal. It's not too heavy on the stomach and will digest quickly.
