Is it Unhealthy to Consume Food During the Night?


Is it detrimental to health to eat at night?


The time least conducive to health for eating is right before sleep.

Research indicates that consuming food at night before bedtime leads to elevated blood sugar levels and increased fat accumulation within fat cells.

Numerous studies have revealed that blood sugar levels exhibit optimal responsiveness to insulin during daytime hours but experience diminished effectiveness at night.

Since the body burns the fewest calories during sleep, the food ingested before bedtime tends to be stored as fat.

The periods offering the most health benefits for eating are before engaging in exercise or within an hour following the completion of your workout!
