In our society there was an opinion that in order to stay slim, one can not eat after six evenings. Many diets and experts advise to bypass the kitchen side in the evening; thin celebrities tell us from the screen that the secret of their harmony is diet, sports and "... and I do not eat after six." Well, how could I not believe it? But let's get into the essence of the matter deeper. We know that each organism is individual, and that helps one, can go to the detriment of another. Specialists in biorhythms have long found out that there are three types of people: "larks" - those who are happy to go to bed early and also get up early, "owls" are people whose peak activity falls on the night, and therefore it is difficult for them to get up early in the morning, and "pigeons" - those who in principle can adjust to any schedule and their daily rhythms often change. What does the "lark" look like? Rising on the call of the alarm clock at 6 am, he is full of energy and ready for a hearty breakfast. And this is the most dense breakfast he just needed - in fact ahead of a busy day and morning, which accounts for the peak of activity "lark". By lunchtime, the "lark" already feels a slight fatigue and a healthy appetite, which pacifies a decent portion of food. At six o'clock in the evening our "lark" finishes all his affairs, returns home, eats his dinner, and by nine in the evening begins to prepare for bed. Such a daily routine is considered ideal and all diets are made, as a rule, for "larks". According to the doctors' recommendations, after the last meal and before going to bed, it should take at least 2-3 hours for the stomach to digest the last meal, and the body at the time of sleep spent its energy only for recovery. Here, "larks" all converge.
And what about the "owls" who wake up broken and do not feel the strength to absorb a full breakfast? If there is an opportunity to wait with breakfast for an hour or two, then it is better to do so - do not force food into yourself. Take breakfast with you and eat it when you are hungry. It turns out that the meals at "owls" are shifted in time and do not coincide with the generally accepted. And in the evening, as mentioned above, the "owl" begins "an attack of activity": I want to do cleaning, sew a dress, draw a picture, or just sit on the Internet. And if your dinner was before six in the evening, then at eleven, at the height of the fun, a brutal appetite catches up. Remembering the rule, the "owl" goes to bed hungry and angry, and next morning everything repeats. Familiar?
It turns out that the rule "do not eat after six" applies only to "larks" - those people whose rhythm of life is close to the standard. And if the "night owl" will stay awake for 6-7 hours on a hungry stomach, it can easily get problems with digestion and excess weight. Still: the body, a long time not receiving nutrients, is stressed and at the first opportunity begins to save fat.
The basis of proper and healthy nutrition is balance. You need to eat so that every 3-4 hours the body receives the necessary substances. The key to success is to correctly distribute your diet according to the number of meals and its calorie intake during the day. Therefore, you do not need to cram yourself into more at six o'clock in the evening. Divide your light dinner into several portions so that you do not go hungry and eat the last 3 hours before going to bed. So you save yourself and your body from unnecessary stress. Do you eat after 18:00?
