You should ideally stop around 6 or 3-4 hours before you go to bed. The earlier you stop the better.

Ideally, you want to eat before 8:00 p.m.   According to Ayurvedic principles it is best to eat your largest meal in the afternoon and a smaller meal at dinner time.   After 10:00 p.m. the body is working on burning off toxins and digesting the food from the day.  If you eat later than 8:00 p.m. you run the risk of the food building up more toxins and as a result the next day you wake up tired.  Overall, you need to find what work best for you and your body.  Just start listening, you'll know what is best.good luck

I eat all the way up until bedtime. I can't go to bed hungry. I've lost 50 lbs this way :)

Why would there be certain time. If I'm with in my calorie limit I'll eat at any time.

I'll eat anytime, but it's generally best to stop within 2 hours of when you go to bed.  If I'm really hungry before going to bed, though, I'll have a small snack.  Generally something easy on the digestive tract.

I'll eat up until bedtime if I'm hungry.  I've still lost weight.

It doesn't matter when you eat. Lots of nights I eat 500 calories right before bed. :). It hasn't hindered my weight loss at all because I keep it within my calorie goal for the day
