There are lot’s of lifestyle reasons why we eat after 6 PM. BUT, This can lead to:
- trouble sleeping as your stomach doesn’t have time to process
- It’s not fashionable. i.e. Only old people eat earlier. 🙂
- It leads to emotional eating based upon being too tired to take the time to prepare healthy, whole food.
- Weight gain
There are lot’s of challenges to eating earlier but Della and I have found the effort is worth it. Eat with your family and spend time together. It makes the meal more enjoyable, you eat slower and you develop better personal connections.
My mantra has become “Food is just fuel”. Food does not solve your problems or make you feel better in the long run.
