Here’s something to keep in mind when a late-night snack attack strikes. The food we eat fuels the hours ahead…Not the hours that have passed. So even if you haven’t eaten all day – and you make a big plate of pasta at 9pm at night – unless you’re staying up and being active for the next 5 or 6 hours, you won’t burn as much of it for fuel and you’re more likely to gain weight. So we want to do the majority of our eating when we’re active…That way, we’ll process the food we eat most efficiently. So when you eat, matters as much as what you eat.
