View Full Version : How late do you eat each night?

What time do you stop eating...or do you just eat until bedtime? If you stop eating at a certain time, what are the main advantages?

It's 10pm and I'm drinking an almond milk, cacao and avocado smoothie. I sleep late though.

As late as I want, sometimes up to 12pm. Not ideal but not going to kill me or make me fat either. ;)

I eat only fruit at night and it's usually around 10 PM when I have a bowl of it. I go to bed around 12 and sometimes I'll have a few more bites of fruit right before, if I'm still hungry.
I've read, if you don't eat at night, you wake up easily and refreshed in the morning. I would like to experience that for myself but I tend to get pretty hungry at night.
I would love to know if the people who don't eat late, pop out of bed in the morning! If so, I may have to try it for a week and see if it works for me.

I've tried to not eat after 7:30, but it doesn't work for me. Probably because I rarely go to bed before 12:30am. Allowing 3 hours after a meal before I lay down is my only concern.
I have made exceptions to the 3 hour guidelline, especially for an occasional dessert, but if I overdo it I might wake up in the middle of the night regretting that choice.

When I eat late, it's usually because I'm emotional eating (like...oh...tonight for instance!). I tend to sleep better, feel happier and wake up in a better mood if I didn't flutter around the kitchen trying to satisfy a craving late the night before. But I don't know if that's due to the late night food, or the triggering emotions. To tell you the truth, I believe that poor eating habits tend to get me into bad mental cycles, which in turn create poor eating habits. Vicious cycle.
In other words, I'm a fan of not eating at night, I think there's some validity to that idea.

Eating some apples right now. Almost 11pm.

Depends on how my day's been. Some days i feel like having fruits all day, and at 9 pm i can get really hungry on those days, so i have something dense, like a nut ball.

When I eat too late I usually Toss and Turn. I have NO set time but it's mostly a Big Lunch and that's it.

Hmm... my set rule is no eating after dark but I am slightly flexible if I'm eating with family or friends and it happens to be late. On a typical day though I usually don't eat after 6 or 7 pm but tend to feel best when I don't eat after 4 or 5pm. I know it sounds weird but I wake up feeling my best when I go to bed noticeably (though not incredibly) hungry.
