Late night meal is something that has become a habit to so many people. It happens especially to those whose job is so demanding and requires them to come back late.
After a hard day's struggle, it is understandable that you will still need to eat something before retiring to bed. However, it is important that we know that the body does not need most of the foods which we eat late at night.
Instead of this food giving the body the nourishment that it deserves, it goes on to cause harm. There are health implications of eating late at night and this is the reason why many suffer from different diseases.Well, instead of returning home to pounce on a well loaded heavy meal, this article reveals about two things which you can do instead of eating late night foods:
1. Don't starve yourself during the day especially from morning till later in the evening. Make sure you have enough to eat during the day.
This is to say that no matter how busy you may be, try so much to keep your system active by eating very healthy meals. When the body is fed well, the late night foods may not be necessary because you will still feel full upon returning home late.
You can eat more of proteinous meals instead of carbs. That way, you can be able to cut down on your cravings by staying full even when you return home late.2. If peradventure there is still need for you to eat late at night because you didn't get enough food during the day, you can go for very light things.
Instead of eating a full plate of pounded yam, rice or noodles at late hour, just go for fruits and vegetables. Water soluble fruits like cucumber and water melon can go a long way to help you stay full.
This way, the body will not need to stress too much. When we eat heavy or unhealthy meals late at night, there are chances that we can add excess weight which can lead to obesity if not controlled.
High cholesterol level which can lead to heart problems, blood pressure, strokes and kidney problems may equally set in. I hope this article helps us to stay healthy.
