Hope: I can’t always eat dinner at an early time. Why do they say you will gain weight if you eat dinner late?
Megan: The truth is that the time doesn’t matter, rather, it is what you eat. The problem with eating late can be that you waited too long to eat and now you overeat or snack more. You tend to consume more calories than intended. Eating pizza versus eating chicken and vegetables doesn’t make either more or less likely to cause you to gain weight. The quality of what you are nourishing your body with, not always when, is important to consider more so than eating late is.
