While late night eating may not be the best for us, it can feel like the late hours of the evening were designed for snacking. For starters, the fridge is right there. Unlike the rest of the day, when your work and other tasks take you away from the fridge, the night puts you in close proximity to it. You also finally have the time to enjoy your food—in the mornings and afternoons, you’re always in such a rush that you inhale your nutrients and barely taste them. The evening seems like the ideal time to relax and enjoy that leftover lasagna. But late-night eating can derail a lot of things, like your fitness goals, stress levels, and sleep. If you’ve been looking for motivation to quit the nocturnal noshing, here is what can happen if you stop late night eating.
