    There are a few myths that eating after a certain time at night slows weight loss. They are untrue - your calorific/fat intake for 24 hours is the same regardless of when you eat during those 24 hours. It shouldn't make any difference when you eat your tea - though you may feel better if you don't eat too near bedtime.

    Yes its totally untrue that eating after 6pm does any harm. Lots of evidence has come out lately that its what and how much you eat that affects your weight not what time you eat it! I dont get home from work untill 7 so by the time I have made the dinner its usually at least half past that we eat it! And im doing grand on the weight loss so far. I wouldnt worry about it hun.x

    I work shifts so eat at different times throughout the week. It doesnt really matter what time you eat just what you eat throughout 24 hours. My 24 hours start when I get up and end when I go to bed so night shifts can be interesting.

    i would argue that there is a significance to when you eat. the later you eat the slower your metabolism is as you're getting ready for sleep and though this wont make you gain weight, it may make the scales in the morning look heavier than they should be due to un digested food

    it makes sense your body slows down its processes when getting ready to sleep, even your breathing slows so your body can fully rest

    i'll ask lol i'll get the typical stock answer " you can't spot reduce fat to reduce the size of *insert body part* you need to change your entire diet and lose weight over all" lol but i will ask.... maybe swimming might help?

    haha wicked. The weight has gone from everywhere else, but my arms.
    Ive not tried swimming, probably everything but swimming. Im not confident enough to get into the pool yet, but will try the slender tone hopefully. Thanks x :)

    I'm not being funny but isn't that a bit like saying, 'My mum's a Dr, so I'm qualified to diagnose illnesses.' ?!!!!

    no but ofcourse the knowledge your family has gained rubs off on you and the people around you because medicine and such things get talked about and if your interested in it, you remember it and increase your knowledge base.
