When our children were young, my wife Clare and I were often so busy early in the evening – feeding them, putting them to bed, reading stories to them – that we broke down in front of the television before we cooked dinner. This meant that we often ate well after 9pm.
More recently, however, we have tried hard to start our dinner at 7:30 p.m. and avoid too many snacks until late at night.
This is almost certainly good for the waistline, a recent study by the University of Nottingham and Tehran’s University of Medical Sciences in Iran confirmed.
Many studies show that our bodies do not like to eat a lot late at night. A midnight snack will affect you worse than the same food you ate earlier in the day [File photo]
