There are no ‘magic’ hours when you should be eating. People associate late-night eating with a greater chance of weight-gain because we usually consume more calories at night. The current recommendation is to start your day with breakfast and eat every 3-4 hours throughout the rest of the day. Be sure to keep lunch the same size as dinner so that you will be less likely to over-indulge at night. Lastly, know that you can enjoy a small, late-night snack without the fear of waking up heavier in the morning.
