Thank you Report
Thanks for sharing Report
Good article. Report
Binge eating is and always has been a huge problem for me. However when I make healthy choices and eat breakfast lunch and snacks I find it less likely. Also I drink uncaffeinated hot tea at night. Helps a ton. Report
Right after dinner I brush and floss my teeth. I don’t want to have to do it again if I have a snack. It deters me from eating again. Report
Why is 5 p.m. the magic time? Shouldn't it be related to when you get up and when you go to bed? Report
Just the article I needed!!! Report
Very helpful & useful post Report
Great guidelines for me to follow! Report
Interesting article and statistics. MY plan has a fruit or 45 carbs at bedtime so i have a banana most nights. Occasionally an apple or grapes. Love my breakfast, usually forget to have lunch and we tend to have our big meal in the evening. Report
Great article! My kitchen is closed at 5:30! Report
I have to admit one of the best cures for eating before bed is to brush and floss. Great article and infor to distract that evening munching! Report
This is one of the really terrible articles. Almost everything is taken out of context and presented as facts.

If you're starving - not just hungry for dinner - when you come home, you're not in control, you've been depriving yourself. Of course you'll want to make up for it. You need to make up for it! If you don't have a good plan - dinner ready or everything ready to make dinner, and a dinner you actually look forward to eat - and your house is full of all the "forbidden" fruits you aren't "allowed" to eat, but you're hungry, tired, bored, and exposed to temptation from commercials on TV, and now you "deserve" it - of course you'll eat!

Even when trying to ignore "5:00 pm", the advice makes no sense. Some people need and like to eat something right before bed. Number of meals is not very relevant; nutrition is relevant. Dinner is the biggest meal for most families (even singles), it's usually a time to relax and enjoy a good meal, and meals have to fit in the daily schedule, which will vary from person to person, and through the week.

Are we supposed to snack or not to snack? Such confuse. Much why! Report
I can't sleep unless it's been 4 hours since I last ate something. So I brush and floss my teeth right after dinner, before I even clean the kitchen. Since I don't want to do that again, I'll wait until morning. Report
