As we have said before also, “Humor keeps us alive. Humor and food. Don’t forget the food. You can go a week without laughing, the right food is as important as to take it at the right time. Because, in the end, you are what, what you eat eats.”
The best time for dinner is before 7 pm, maximum by 7:30 pm. Eating late at night, especially heavy foods/ or food specifically high in carbohydrates/ sugar, and going to sleep shortly after that is a key contributor to acid reflux and weight gain.
It even disturbs your hormonal cycle and could lead to a severe condition. For many years, low-carb diets have been in fashion – based on the belief and science that eating lots of carbohydrates, particularly in the form of sugary treats such as white bread, white rice or refined flour pasta, is bad for your waist and for your blood-sugar control, and moreover leads to weight gain. All this aggravates specifically when carbs are eaten at odd timings, in a late night routine.
The reasoning is if you eat lots of carbohydrates /sugars, particularly the sort without fiber that gets quickly absorbed like maida/ refined flour, they will rapidly push up your blood glucose (sugar) levels.
Unless you burn this glucose off by doing exercise, your pancreas will pump out lots of the hormone insulin to bring these levels back down to normal. Which is not done in normal days. So, your pancreas comes in the cycle of releasing excessive insulin, leading to the condition of Diabetes Mellitus.
It even adds on to your lipid profile as the excessive sugar from the carbs is stored as fat. Too much stored fat, particularly visceral fat (the fat layer covering your abdomen and around your organs like kidney, liver, etc) can lead to serious health problems such as heart disease, type-2 diabetes, fatty liver disease, etc.
When you’re on a diet plan, eating the right food and at the right time are both equally important when attempting to lose weight and also for a healthy body. If you want to shed kilos abruptly, then you need to take care of both. But amidst our hectic schedule and work pressure, we often have our lunch late in the afternoon and this one factor is enough to destroy our weight loss intention.
