  • I have heard mixed reviews. I had a trainer that said it's not as bad as people believe, that we're going to burn the same calories regardless if we eat before bed or not. But, i have heard lots of people say it's a terrible thing to do when dieting. Which sucks, because right before bed is whan i have my crackhead chocolate craving.....

  • My trainer said it is bad, you go to sleep all night with a stomach full of food and ur metabolism slows when ur sleep vs during the day. I cant eat after a certain time or i have really bad nightmares. ; )

  • No, if you're hungry, you should eat something. But avoid heavy meals late.

  • You shouldn't eat 3 hours before you go to bed. Since a lot of people go to be around 10 or 11 pm they don't eat after seven. I often have a 10pm snack because I'm usually up till 1 or 2 AM because I work second shift. I've lost almost 50 pounds!
