hello there guys., is this true that when you eat dinner before clock strikes at 6pm you will somehow loose weight? because my friend told me that our digestion is slower 6pm onward so if we eat 6pm onwards our stomach will find it hard to digest and that becomes a fat., have anyone of you tried this eating before 6pm? i find it interesting hehe i plan to loose weight this summer., any opinion or tips on how to loose weight?

I have heard that it's 8:00 PM that you are not supposed to eat anything past. That after 8 PM you're digestion system slows down as you're body starts getting ready for sleep. Well I guess if it's the sleep thing that slows our bodies digestion system down then we can assume that we should just not eat when we are tired. I think that the best thing to do is to try to cut back on some foods, and the portions you eat of them and then other then that I would just suggest taking long walks a few times a day if you can. Also there is apple cider vinegar, you can use that, drink a teaspoon diluted in an 8 oz glass of water. It's not the tastiet thing ever however it does help you supress your appetite and helps you shed a few lbs.

Hi. I don't really believe in the after 6pm rule. I believe in eating small frequent meals to lose fat. In eating small meals frequently, you will be able to reduce your caloric intake and avoid spikes in your blood sugar. By doing this regularly, you will be able to train your body to be full in smaller meals and be hungry after two hours or so. In that aspect, your body will utilize all the caloric and energy intake in the span of two hours hence, no fat storage. Remember to eat until you're SATISFIED not FULL. Hope this helps.

I too started to eat smaller meals every few hours. I found it helped curb my appetite so that I didn't get really hungry and overeat. I always make sure protein is part of every meal. Still, I have to put up with some hunger in order to lose.

It's really hard when you get those cravings especially in the middle of the night when your body craves for cheesburgers or pizza but you know you should not eat it haha. I cheat once in a while to satisfy my cravings but i see to it that i don't pig out. Then i'll workout harder to burn those excess calories hehe.

So what happens to a person who works a graveyard job, gets up at 6pm and starts their day???

As a rule, it is better to stop eating after 6pm, but only if you keep 'regular hours' and go to sleep around 10 or 11pm. Personally I always have milk before I go to sleep..especially when I have been dieting. It somewhat keeps me from being hungry so I can sleep better.

Are you serious? That's a weird diet. Although, there have been some strange diets out there. I have heard that its best to eat dinner at least 3-4 hours before bed. But im not sure if it helps to loose weight or maintain. If that really works, omg!

ummmm well we usually are not so active during the night so maybe that is another reason why some people have that some kind of a big belly because or retained food and fats are stored in that area. awwwww i am skinny and but i still long to gain more weight this summer and from this day on. you look great already hmmmm i think you can also try jogging and do some more exercises, and then cut down your food intake but just never skip your meals take care and enjoy summer

Hi there! It depends..on the amount of food you will eat. Anytime is the best time to have diet if only you have that discipline to control your intake. =)
