Hi, everyone! It’s me, Tara, again.

If you’ve ever done research on how to lose weight… I’m sure you’ve come across a million different “tips & tricks.”

One of the most popular? “Don’t eat after ___ time at night!” (Fill in the blank with a time that seems to be different for everyone you ask. Some people say 6 pm… others 10 pm!)

Honestly, I even fell victim to this at one time too. One of my friends started losing weight… and she looked amazing!

So of course, I asked her what she was doing to melt off the pounds and look so good. Her answer?

“I stopped eating after 8 pm!”

Really? That’s the only thing she changed… and suddenly she’s 15 lbs lighter?! (At least… that’s the only thing she told me!)

So, while it’s obvious that WHAT you eat definitely has an effect on your weight… does WHEN you eat matter as well?

Does avoiding food after a certain time really make the fat melt right off your body?

And if so, what is the magic “right time” to stop eating? What’s the science behind this idea, anyway?

Hi everyone!

This is Tara with Fit Trim Happy. I am a certified nutrition coach and I’m here to answer some questions.

Today’s question is a great one: Is it bad to eat late at night?

So the answer is that you want to eat most of your food… take in most of your calories and nutrients… before about 6 pm. However, it’s perfectly natural to have some hunger pangs later at night… let’s say 7, 8, 9 o’clock.

Midnight snacks are not something I recommend because your metabolism is winding down. You may be just about to sleep—hopefully, at midnight—and so you’re not going to burn those calories.

With that said, there’s a big difference between having a burger at midnight and having some celery. So if you’re going to have a midnight snack, just make sure it’s a good one.

Alright, now here’s your free gift. The gift is a guide to my favorite cheeses that actually burn fat and help you lose more weight!

If You Absolutely NEED A Midnight Snack… 

I get it. Despite your best efforts to eat something healthy & filling for dinner… and close up the kitchen so you aren’t tempted by late-night munching…

Let’s be real… Sometimes you just NEED a little midnight snack.

But you also know that night is the worst time to eat, since your metabolism is slower… so, when that craving strikes and you absolutely can’t shake it… be wise about your snacking choice.

But don’t worry—I’m not going to tell you that you have to eat celery as your midnight snack. (Because celery is not a snack. It’s this watery stick of green that no one really likes).

But while you don’t have to stick to celery for your late-night snacking… you might want to consider something a little healthier than a whole pint of ice cream… or an entire sleeve of Oreos. (We’ve all been there… more than once.)

If you want to add some fat-burning power to your midnight munching… may I suggest going for something high-protein?

Protein might not be your first thought when you think of late-night snacks… but science says that eating more protein leads to more fat burn!

In fact, one study showed that people who consumed 15-30% more protein per day… burned an average of 441 MORE calories the next day.

Plus protein will make you feel more satisfied, helping you snack in more helpful amounts.

So, if you want to indulge in a midnight snack that WON’T stick to your waistline for the next 2 years…

Look for protein! Try a handful of nuts… a hardboiled egg… some Greek yogurt… veggies with hummus or a yogurt dip… chia pudding… or nut butter with an apple.
