When I think of weight loss…
Exercise and changes in the types of food that I eat are two things that come into my mind.
But this week I actually found two different sources that say eating late can cause weight gain, bloating and other issues.
In Women’s Health magazine there is an advice article written by the senior editor, Marissa Gainsburg.
In the article she explains what happened when she began eating dinner at least two hours before she went to bed.
She tends to exercise at night, so she had to make some changes to her schedule.
But, when she began eating dinner earlier she was surprised!
- She felt less groggy in the mornings
- She says her tummy was flatter
- She even lost three pounds!
All this happened just from eating dinner earlier than she normally does!
In the book, The Bloat Cure…
There is a chapter dedicated to eating dinner earlier.
In the chapter, it says that your stomach contractions follow the light and dark cycles.
The book explains that your digestive muscles slow down at night, which can cause you to feel bloated and sleepy (especially if you eat a big meal).
If you want to feel more energized and less bloated, this is a simple change that can have a big impact!
Digestion is important for you to absorb the vitamins and minerals that your body needs.
To make sure that your body is working well, some other things you can do include:
- Drink more water
- Eat fiber packed foods
- Get your probiotics
Probiotics are so important to keep your gut in balance and working properly.
They are another great way to help you reduce bloating, especially if you tend to have food intolerance’s like I do!
Check out my favorite probiotic HERE.
I drink it every morning with some water to make sure that I am hydrated after a long night of peaceful sleep.
