Why You Should Stop Eating After Dinner

By Genevieve Cunningham

Losing weight is one of the most challenging things that you’ll ever do in life. While it’s easy to pile on the pounds, carving them back off requires patience and self-discipline like never before. But sometimes it can be a little easier than you think. Take a look at this one easy tip that may have you dropping the pounds faster than ever before in your life.

The Big Tip: Stop Your Midnight Snacking

This might sound easy, but if you’re used to eating after dinner, it’s tough at first. This method of eating requires you to eat dinner at a relatively early hour, perhaps 6 or 7 p.m., and then refrain from eating until your morning breakfast. No snacking, no juice or milk before bed, only water to keep you company.

Why Does It Work?

The theory behind this method stems from fasting. While most would not really call this fasting, it is definitely requiring that you keep an empty stomach for 10 to 12 hours every day. Proponents of this method say that this allows your body time to digest what you’ve eaten throughout the day, and may even require that you dip into your reserves, or in other words, burn your fat cells for energy.

How Do You Get Started?

The best way to begin is to simply cut out all late night snacking. As you find this easier and easier, try moving your dinner to an earlier time. If you do these at the same time, you’ll likely be starving at bedtime and give in, so take them slowly and at your own pace. If you’re still on the go at dinner time, you have two options. You can either get really prepared and take your dinner with you, or you can move your breakfast time to later in the morning so that you still have 10 to 12 hours on an empty stomach. Choose what works best for you, as this will be your best chance of success.

Are There Any Other Steps?

Many people find that this method is enough to jumpstart a good eating habit. But others want more, more, more. If you want another way to enhance this method, try working out before your morning snack. Some people believe that this accelerates weight loss, as your body is forced to burn fat for your workout since it does not have any other sources in your body after your all night fasting session.

If you want to lose weight, there are a million ways to do it. Just choose a method and stick with it, and you’ll likely see results. If you need a simple yet productive way to get started, give this method a try. It’s relatively easy, a cinch to incorporate into your routine, and is beneficial to the many who try it. Time, patience, and self-discipline … the keys to a healthy body that you already possess and just have to unlock.
