Most of you think that late night eating is main cause of weight gain. It is wrong for food does not contain more calories at night. However way of eating food or eating extra food can do that. You should be careful in eating at late night especially if you are exhausted. Late night eating is not actual reason of gaining weight but you should follow some rules while eating at late night. The things that you can follow in eating late night safely are given below.
Diet or food pattern is necessary when you plan to diet for loosing weight that you often forget to do. Taking few calories in breakfast and lunch and skipping dinner meal is not a healthy activity regarding eating food. Typical fast food items like burgers, fries, cold drinks and other sugary foods propagate that eating at late night causes for weight gain.
Selecting goo meal plan for night dinner is very important. Your night plan must include whole-grain fibers, lean proteins and veggies. If you like to eat snacks at night, popcorns, string cheese and carrot with hummus is better to eat. This kind of food will be better for you for late night meal and you will not gain weight.
Hunger or Habit
Many of you eat at night just because of availability of food without hunger. Actually it is the habit of eating every time. If such food goes beyond the nutrition that you have gained throughout the day, you will definitely gain weight and this is not for eating at night. If you are watching TV at night, it is good but sitting with can of soft drink or eating large bowl of ice cream is not a nice and healthy eating habit. Such eating habits become the causes of weight gain and you just think that it is for eating at night. You must differentiate hunger and habit of eating.
Scheduling Night Meal
If you are forced to eat at night for your tough routine, then you should be very selective in eating your night meal. An “Obesity Research” by Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) claims that eating after sundown is not cause of weight gaining and you can do it but in proper way.
It is easy to stick to eating food in day time as you have to do many other activities rather than just eating. But at the night time when you are sleepless, with racing mind and worn out, you cannot resist food available in refrigerator. So don’t be emotional with food and take care of your good health. Your eating habits and behavior should like a wise person rather than eating anything in front of you.
If you work out with the ways to eating food at night mentioned above, you will not ever complain for weight gaining just for eating at night. From the above discussion we come to the conclusion that eating food at night is not cause of weight gaining but eating habits and ways of eating are responsible for gaining weight in case of eating at late night. We can say that belief of weight gaining at night is absolutely wrong and if you adopt good eating habits at night, you can have good health.
