Hi GarthFan,

It's a myth that eating in the evenings will make you gain weight. What happens often with evening eating for people who go to bed by 10-11pm is that fatigue makes us choose foods we wouldn't, or amounts we wouldn't, if we weren't tired. That said, I always have an evening snack, to help maintain my blood sugar levels at night. I would suggest you decide which 24hrs you're tracking with your schedule, even if that includes a bedtime snack at 1am. It might be a good idea to start your 24hrs when you awaken, since your internal clock is already set up for a later morning and a much later evening.

Does that help?

Hi there,
I was wondering if anyone on the team could help me out with this. Ok, you know how they say that you shouldn`t eat in the evenings after supper to lose weight. Well I have a little problem. I work as a cleaner for a sports arena. We sometimes work daytime hours 9 am until whenever the place is clean or night time hours which is 9 pm until the place is clean which can be until 6 to 7 am. It`s because of that, body clock tends to get screwed up. Since I work hours like that, we tend to have lunches at 3 am and etc. I really want to lose weight, but it`s hard when you`re having lunchtime at 3 am. Can anyone suggest anything I can do other then quitting the job which I can`t afford to do right now.

Did you know that there's a size 0? I didn't know that. I guess size 0 stands for "Oooooohhhh my god you're thin" - Quote from Ellen Degeneres.
