Does it matter WHEN you eat? A resounding yes, despite the objection of many nutrition professionals. Research shows that eating dinner earlier is effective for both weight loss and reduction of body fat. In a recent pilot study by Antoni and colleagues published in the Journal of Nutritional Science, participants who ate dinner 1½ hours earlier than usual ate fewer total calories and lost weight. This experience of “reverse fasting” is a realistic improvement on Intermittent Fasting, discussed in my previous blog.
Just One Thing to do: If you are trying to lose weight, eat dinner before 6 pm, with no snacking afterwards.
