Well, some rules are made to be broken, aren't they?:) My nutritionist was assuming that everyone goes to bed at ten, like she does. I almost never go to bed before midnight or one, so I move it to 8:00pm

But dinner is really just to get you through the rest of the evening, and very often, unless we're headed to the gym after work, those are calories that just never quite get used.
You can adjust that time according to when you settle down to bed - anything not burned before that mostly gets stored into your cells as fatness. Or so it was explained to me.

I love Michael Pollan's books - I have several sayings of his that I wrote down and stuck to my fridge: "Pay more, eat less," and "Don't eat anything pre-packaged that has more than five ingredients in it."

One more thing - not from Michael Pollan, just something we all say to each other in my family -

Never eat anything bigger than your head.
It's a bad idea.

The first bite is bliss. After that, it's just more of the same.

If this is a registered dietitian telling you this, she should be reported to her professional body and required to do some retraining. This is completely inaccurate and people pick up this kind of stuff reading articles about sumo wrestlers and night eating syndrome in Star Weekly.

Your body uses calories continuously, including while you are asleep, to support organ function. Though it is widely reported that you can increase the rate at which calories are used (both during activity and at rest) through engaging in aerobic exercise, there is no mechanism that directs calories to be stored into your cells as fatness at a given time of the day.

^Trish speaks true!! :)

It's not the when, but the what that fattens - for theoretically there fit's a lot of chocolate or similar energy-dense food into my two cupped hands, oh yes! ;)

But then, I was only recently engaged in some nutrition discussion (or battle?) on me thyroid forum ( where I've already irritated folks nutritionally with my unfaltering love of sushi and similar iodine bombs :rolleyes: ) and got in between the "carbohydrates are evil" and "proteins are evil" front lines with my "proteins are essential and a wee bit of these carbohydrates, particularly of these lovely complex ones - like in my honey :) - don't harm neither, and even a bit fat ain't bad, in particular these nice omega-3 thingies" approach - so I run off now.... & fast! :D

:cool: Trish, I can't tell you how happy this makes me! I'm doing a happy dance right now.
It's after 7:30pm and I'm about to tuck into a nice meal.
Thank you!
