4. Your Mealtime is Too Late

Even if you exercise, one reason you may not be losing weight is that you haven’t changed your mealtime habits. One of the worst of these may be late-night eating.

But it may not be for the reason you think.

There has been a popular belief circulating that if you eat late at night, the calories simply don’t burn off as quickly as meals eaten during the day. Recent scientific evidence does not support that idea.

While it’s true there are some unfortunate results associated with late night eating, these are related more to getting too little sleep. Not getting enough hours of sleep tends to slow one’s metabolism—it may be the lack of sleep, not the late night eating that is leading to the weight gain.

Another thought is to investigate what foods you’re eating at night. Chances are you’re curling up on the couch with a bag of chips or a tub of ice-cream while vegging out in front of the TV. In fact, by the time you drag yourself groggily to bed, you’ve consumed a lot more calories than you thought you did.
