When you’re following a medical weight loss plan, the basic idea is that you must consume fewer calories than you burn through activity and general metabolic processes. And so, any eating plan will revolve around choosing appropriate foods and eating the right portion sizes.
But in addition to that, you might have read that the time of your meals can matter. Some people believe that because your metabolism slows as you’re sleeping, eating a big meal before bed is a bad idea because you won’t be able to burn off the calories. Generally speaking, they’re right. But that doesn’t mean you have to go to bed starving, if you’re feeling famished at the end of the day.
