For you all who want to lose weight

Eat breakfast. An empty stomach causes your body to release hormones that act to store fat when given your next meal.

Don't eat 2-3 hrs before bed.

Do your grocery shopping on the perimeter of the grocery story. Don't go into the middle.

Don't cut out one particular food group completely.

I'm a horrible night eater really good during the day but then I'm at home doing nothing but watching TV and AF/DDNA drama () and I graze. I stopped myself yesterday and lost a pound!

Small portions of food throughout the day rather than three large meals is also better.

I agree with the OP.
You want to eat a GOOD breakfast, with lots of protein.
Drink PLENTY of water.
Don't eat at least 3 hours before going to bed.
Don't cut out any food group completely.
Instead, count calories...(makes you more aware of what you are eating through out the day)
And of course, exercise.

This may not make you loose weight, however, you will decrease your body fat percentage and increase you lean muscle mass. (Shed inches of you waist, arms, thighs, etc)

We put a lot of patients on a diet like this all the time at my work.

counting calories is a terrible way to monitor eating. IMO.
1/4 cup of mixed nuts have 190 calories. So does say... a cookie. Their nutrition values are completely different. Counting calories a good as a GUIDE. But anyone can count numbers and not know what they're eating.
Oh wow only 90 calories? Ingredients: chemical, chemical, additive, artificial blah. etc

Take a good look at what is on your plate. Is it all natural? Do you know exactly what is in the food? Does it look colorful? Are they portioned well? (lots of fruits and veggies, less meat/oil, enough starch/carbs to provide energy)

It scares me when people exercise a lot, but eat very little calories and starches. I'm over generalizing a bit... but if you are too tired when you exercise, try adding more carb/starches so you can work out longer.

disclaimer: My advice/opinion is based solely on common sense. What I feel like is healthy.

that was no bueno. And it has completely gone away, so I have no clue what happened? I ate a whole chipotle burrito tonight (FINALLY!) and was fine.

I was a very good girl though and I have not eaten since 9 PM, when I had a small piece of strawberry cake.

you're right, it hasn't been disproven, but it hasn't been proven either. i just know it's one of those things that's practiced by almost every culture except for Westerners. Usually that means it's probably good lol.

Vik,

It's simple math. Calories eaten - BMR + minimum daily caloric needs + exercise = weight loss or gain.

When you eat has almost no bearing in this equation.

You have not taken into account that BMR is fluid, and is lower during sleeping hours. If you account for that, the not eating before bed theory hypothetically fits your equation.

Nonetheless, your equation is over simplified. I will give you an example. It doesn't take into account hormonal fluctuations such as that of cortisol, which can be triggered by timing of food intake, and would lead to increased nutrient storage compared to consuming the identical diet during the day, at different timings.

I will also add that there are some things that we should just ignore what science says or doesn't say, and take advice from other cultures that are far more developed than our own. And this is coming from a scientist.

additionally, exercise is far less important than diet - you can only burn so many calories via exercise due to time and physical constraints. it's a lot easier to cut 300 calories out that you don't need, like the snickers or the 600 packets of sweet relish you couldn't open, than run for an hour.

The more muscle you have the higher your metabolism, muscle burns more calories at rest than fat. So yes exercise is paramount and very important for skeletal and mental health, as well as MANY other benefits.

There's an afterburn effect from exercise, though--and that helps burn extra calories above and beyond what you burned actually doing it. This is why I generally exercise in the late afternoon, so I can come home and eat dinner (traditionally the biggest meal of the day) during the 2-hour window where you get cardio afterburn. Apparently for weight training the afterburn is longer (and I really need to get on some weight training...)

There have been studies that see how people balance their calories though and it's never been shown to make a difference. The reason with eating before bed is that it rarely works out to the same food and calories that a person would have eaten earlier in the day. If you were going to eat a larger breakfast, it's unlikely you'd add ice cream to your breakfast, but before bed it can be so tempting.
