Top 9 most overlooked reasons for weight gain

3. Having Dinner Too Late

When it comes to reasons for weight gain, having your dinner too late is one of them. It is not a bad idea to have your favorite nighttime snack if you are hungry, yet waiting too late to have your dinner might be bad for your weight loss goals for different reasons. The first, your own body cannot digest food properly during sleep, so the optimal absorption of nutrients will not happen, nor does the burning of the intake of calories because you are currently less active. The second, eating dinner too late means that you tend to make poor food choices. Thus, it is better for you to have dinner at least 3 hours before hitting the hay and consume a light meal with a large amount of lean protein, veggies, and a little healthy fat. Also, minimize the amount of carbs at dinner, if you are not consuming a big source of fat. [Read: worst foods to eat before bed]
