Myths about eating after 6 p.m.

Surely, you’ve heard that the best way to lose weight is simply to stop eating after 6 p.m. It is true that refusing dinner helps to consume fewer calories. However, sometimes it turns into torturing yourself instead of healthy way of losing weight.

Most of people eat about 46% of their daily food after 5 p.m. However, American scientists claim that even if you eat this way, it doesn’t have to have negative impact on your weight. The most important is not the time when we are eating, but what we are eating.

Myth 1. Eat fruits for dinner. The bottom line is that fruits contain lots of fructose, which has the same effect on your body lines as pure sugar, especially if you eat fruits at night. Instead you should eat fruits for breakfast or between your meals during the first part of the day. You should especially limit bananas, grapes, mangoes and some kind of apples. Don’t forget that if you eat fruits before going to bed, you can have bloating.

Myth 2. Do not eat hot meals for dinner. In fact everything depends on the amounts of food you eat and also on the amount of fats and sugar in food. A sandwich with lots of butter and ham will be much worse that steamed vegetables, a piece of steamed, fish, chicken or soup.

Myth 3. Pasta will make you fat. This is not true. Everything depends on the sauce you choose. If instead of cream sauce you choose mashed tomatoes, you will avoid weight issues. Also make sure you choose whole grain pasta.

Myth 4. Your dinner should be very light and small portion. You can eat your main food for dinner instead of lunch, if you want. Just make sure that in total you get more calories during the first part of the day.

Myth 5. The best choice for dinner is salad. In fact, everything depends on what kind of salad you will eat. If you choose popular Cesar salad, you will hardly lose weight. However, you can always go for light cheese, vegetables and eggs salad which is a much better option.
