While eating late at night has been associated with obesity, midnight munching does not CAUSE obesity. A potbelly is the result of too many calories OVERALL, not just the results of late-night snacks. “The time of day a person eats is not as important for overall weight gain as the amount of calories eaten during the day,” says a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association. Late-night eating CAN lead to extra poundage. But it’s NOT because of the time of day, it’s because eating late at night is likely to involve ALCOHOL and SOCIALIZING…two factors that often lead us to over-eat. And eating in this state tends to be MINDLESS munching, of calorie-rich foods. Whether or not you gain weight is simple: if you take more calories in than you expend, then weight you will gain. It’s about how MUCH you eat, not so much about WHEN you eat. Weight gain and eating late…busted!
