Myth number 2 in the series..Eating after 8pm makes you fat

The truth is, we usually eat our quota of calories (the number of calories needed to maintain our current weight) by 8pm, then we eat excess calories after 8pm. These calories don’t make us fatter BECAUSE we eat them then lay down and sleep but rather because these calories represent excess calories for the day. In addition, the foods we generally eat after 8pm are the sweeter, better tasting, higher calorie foods.  It does’t take much of these choices to add lots of calories to our day.
