I don't see anywhere where it says you need to eat dinner by 5pm. The article says,
"You may have a problem with evening eating if:
More than one-third of your meals & snacks are eaten after 5:00 pm.
More than one-third of your total calories are consumed after 5:00 pm."
What the above means is if you eat most of your food in the evening, you probably have a problem with evening eating. I don't know where people got "you HAVE to eat dinner before 5pm."
This, along with what other dietitians say, is a GUIDELINE. It is not a law, the food police will NOT arrest you if you eat something at 5:01 PM. I don't see ANY unrealistic expectation in this article, I appreciate the information provided!
I joined SP a long time ago, and enjoyed the helpful articles. Now reading the comments just makes me depressed. (I can't help but read them, they show up on the side of the article). I'm glad I don't write anything for SP, my self esteem would be in the gutter with all these mean comments!
