Recently, a surprising pair of research studies shed new light (from two different directions) on an old question: Is late night eating bad for you?
The first finds that our appetite tends to peak at around 8pm. Should we listen to our bodies or to the weight loss gurus who tell us NEVER to eat after dinner? My thoughts in this podcast.
The second study found that eating late may, in fact, impede weight loss–even it doesn’t lead to eating more. Drat. My thoughts on how (or whether) to change your meal schedule in this podcast.
There was the usual round up of interesting questions in the Nutrition Diva mailbag:
- Is reverse osmosis a good method for filtering water?
- Do you need B-12 injections?
- What’s the right portion size for beans and legumes?
Elsewhere across the web, my thoughts on sprouted grains in Men’s Fitness, some great new apps that can help you eat healthy and well for Intel IQ, and the debut of my new Smart Food column debuted in Baltimore Style magazine.

Great podcast Monica. Personaly, i have researched a lot of informations about nutrition the last few weeks since i developed a new meal plan for muscle gains. I came across a site that has taught me that “late night eating” isn’t all bad, depending on someone’s Somatype. I am somewhat between Ecto-Mesomorph and i still loss pounds while eating before going to bed. Thanks for sharing!
