    Why would you do that?
    I eat after 6pm every day! I don't get my dinner until 6.30-7pm and then I have supper/snack around 9pm.
    I always have. I lost my weight doing this and have maintained.
    Why you would not eat after 6pm I don't know - what if you get hungry?? Eek. Doesn't bear thinking about!!

    Sorry, it's a big NO from me.

    Nope not me :D my family life would not work if we didnt eat after that time, we sometimes eat as late as 8.30/9pm it has not hindered my weightloss.

    I eat after 6.00pm every day too, so it's a big NO from me too.
    They have also discovered that it is a total fallacy that eating after a certain time hinders weight loss.
    Eat when hungry is my motto!

    Your boyfriend speaks wise words!! Not often I'd tell someone to listen to someone else, but he's correct!

    er seeing as i am still at work at 6pm each night - yes, i do eat after 6pm!!!

    Ive heard about people not eating late in the night, but not 6pm :D xxx i think its to do with processing, but everyones body is different, my friend works shifts at the cinema, so has to eat at funky times sometimes....not great, but her bodyclock demands food when its hungry! x

    Goodness me, you are doing everything right.. why try and lose more? 4lbs in one week is amazing! Bearing in mind SW advocate that 1 to 2 pounds per week is a healthy loss, you have done so well!

    I think the only way that would work is if you were an evening snacker. That way the last time you ate would be your evening meal. You could effectively be consuming alot less calories but at what price?
    I couldn't do it for instance, I would end up crashing and bingeing after a few days!

    Mind you if you get indigestion/acid reflux it would help as you won't be lying down on a full tummy.
