A research article published by the Pereiman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania (abstract #0064) indicates strongly that eating late at night is dangerous for your health and weight.
Their research shows that eating later at night increases your body weight by by increasing your glucose and insulin levels. This habit also affects your cholesterol levels, fat metabolism, and hormonal markers that target increased chances of heart diseases, diabetes, and other health issues.
Their research findings for me have confirmed what my Great Grandmother told me as a child about her diet habits to keep her weight under control that were passed down to her. I’ve used her suggestions and managed my weight so far. I eat large breakfast because it’s the most important meal of the day. I eat a large lunch before 1pm. After that time, if I’m hungry, I eat very petite snacks and dinner if needed of cheese, nuts, yogurt, and or a protein. Nothing more until breakfast time the next day.
There is an old saying that fits perfectly for this subject and I don’t know who to give credit to, but the saying about controlling weight gain goes something like this: You eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper.
I would like to say thanks to www.Pixabay.com for the lovely cheeseburger.
