Quote of the Day
Recipe of the Day or a Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day
A night time eater, eats the majority of their calories in the evening. This could be for many reasons. This unhealthy diet habit could be intentional, because you are trying to diet, and believe skipping meals saves you calories, or unintentional, because you are just busy during the day and do not take time to eat.
Many yo-yo dieters practice this food habit. They try to eat tiny meals during the day, but then their body goes into severe hunger mode, and begins sending out powerful cravings. They eat dinner and then eat on and off until bedtime. This is an unhealthy diet habit that must end!
