Too Late?

How late is too late to eat dinner? Sometimes we don't get settled down to eat before 8:00 or so and then we're in bed by 11:00. Our main meal is dinner and I think we're eating too late. Is there a rule about this somewhere?

There isn't a rule but you should eat before that. You are not as active at night so it's best to not eat so late. We make a lot of slow cooker meals for this reason alone. If I had to make dinner when I got home every night we wouldn't eat until 8pm.

According to a dietician I spoke to a couple of years ago, it doesn't matter what time you eat at in terms of weight loss! There's no way I'd make it til then without food though, I tend to eat at about 5 with the kids cos I'm always starving by then!

I have heard that it's the overall amount of calories throughout the day and not the time eaten. I usually eat dinner around 7pm and then have a snack before bed as I get so hungry at bedtime!

Thanks for the input folks. Even though calorie intake is a key factor in dieting, I don't feel as good the next morning when I eat very late at night. It's going to take a lot of planning on my part though. Change is always tough.

We use to eat late, any where from 7 to 9 and have to say since eating earlier (by 7 most times now) I feel better and more relaxed in the evenings. I don't like going to bed until my food has settled.
