    Hi everyone, i have been told by numerous people that not eating after 7pm really helped them lose weight. i guess in my case it might, even on Exante... I only get off work at 6, and of course late at night is when i get hungry, around 10 or 11pm, and end up having an extra pack because of it. If I decided that my rule was cutoff at 7pm no matter what, maybe I would just go to bed earlier! Does anyone else follow this rule?

    I try to have my last pack at about 7-7:30, just because I want to try and get into that habit when I start eating again as evenings were my worst time for grazing. I know on lots of others healthy eating plans some say don't, but to be fair it needs to fit into your own lifestyle too. Also I get indigestion if I eat too late! X

    Exante - currently
    I'm in the camp that does not believe in that kind of thing - ie that calories whether proper food / exante do not know what time of day it is and therefore does not matter what time of day to eat. I think that whatever opinion you follow, you have to find what is best for you and if having a pack late at night suits you then go for it.

    Thats one of the many diet myths that go around, theres absolutely no truth in it whatsoever

    I rarely have ANY packs before 1930/2000 and its done me no harm. When I was doing WW I regularly ate at 2200/2300 at night or later and I still had great losses

    Eat whenever suits you best

    I agree with everyone else, eat when you feel hungry cos it won't make any difference whatsoever

    I totally agree with the fact that it is a myth.

    I usually have 2 meals between 8pm and 9.30pm every day.

    Eating at certain times won't affect weight loss, especially not on Exante.

    OK, thanks everyone :) I think that I am like the first person who replied, evening is the worst time for grazing for me when I am on regular food. But yes, sometimes life intervenes and I literally can't even sit down to have a pack during the workday (which ends at 6). I will give it all some thought. Glad to know that it won't really make a difference. :)

    I used to be quite bad for snacks after dinner, which is why i'm getting myself in the habit of having my "dinner" shake at 6/7. That way I can knock myself out of the habit of late eating. Hopefully :/

    Really good to hear all these views, I was worried about eating late as I have always been told it wasn;t good for weight loss. I prefer to eat late to this is good news for me.

    I think the reason it's not meant to be great for weightloss is that the later you eat, the less time you have to burn it off.

    But I dunno...that's just what I was told!

    Wow starlight - how do you manage all day without eating? Is it that you don't get hungry now you're on exante?
