    Jus wanted a bit of advice. I am so good at stickn to my diet all day then by the time 8 or 9 comes im desperate for somethng to eat. Is it true if u eat after 6 u will put weight on ?? Its not that I need a meal, a snack would satisfy me but iv got it in my head if I have anything after 6/7 I wont lose any weight at my weighin Am I jus bein silly??

    It doesnt really matter what time you eat, its more about what you eat! I think its a myth that if you eat after 6pm you will put on weight. although i do make an effort not to eat too late maybe after 8pm just beacuse it can make me feel uncomfortable in bed. maybe you need to have more for your tea and you wont get hungry later on! x

    * sorry, i noticed after that you said advice please from fellow ww, but i think it applies to any diet!

    i know what you mean, night time is worst for me too but i think the picking at food for me is more of a habit than hunger. if i brush my teeth about 9 then i know i wont eat anything else. lol. silly i know! x

    Maybe save a few points for a snack or treat in the evening ?
    I start work at mid day so have to have my lunch at 11.30 which means there is no way I would last til my evening meal at around 7, so I have a small lunch and then a largish snack when I get home at around 4.
    You can organise your points to fit around you

    Hope you find a solution

    My trainer at the gym says it's carbs you shouldn't eat after 6pm as they slow your metabolism down. But he tells me I can eat fruit and veg and protein.
    But we don't eat dinner until half 7/8pm anyway, so it's not something I've ever thought about too seriously.
    I always have fruit now in the evening or my latest crush ~ WW lemon and lime mousse 2pp and absolutely lush!

    Hi Kimmy, I know you said you wanted advice from fellow WWers, but thought I'd just drop you a quick note.

    I live in Spain where the culture is to eat late. Mostly because in the summer when its 40c you can't even think about cooking before 9pm.

    We eat at 9pm in the winter and about 10pm in the summer and there's no way I can avoid carbs entirely otherwise I would starve to death. LOL

    I am doing SW and am successfully losing even eating a full meal at this time of night so having a snack will not be too damaging.

    Stick to stuff that is free or near free - fruit and yoghurt is my favourite snack (I think fruit is free on WW and a WW youghurt is oonly 1pp).

    Good luck with WW

    Living in Spain and eating late does have it's disadvantages though - especially when we have friends visiting, particularly with younger kids, who want to eat out at 6 or 7pm. The restaurants are all shut and often don't open til 9pm.
