I frequently emphasize personal experimentation in regard to when, and how, we consume our food. We often hear it is best to consume our last meal of the day at least two hours before we lay in bed. This may work excellently for some… but not for all, and probably not for most.
You must take into consideration your personal lifestyle choices. Perhaps you exercise late in the evening and find, if you don’t eat afterward, you wake up in the middle of the night starving. Or maybe you like to have some chocolate or candy after dinner. If you find it uncomfortable to lay down on a full stomach, then allowing more time between your last meal and bedtime is probably a good idea.
Personally, I enjoy eating a large meal high in carbohydrates soon before I go to sleep at night. Watch my brief talk to learn why along with more insight into the value of thoughtful experimentation with our bodies for permanent weight loss.
