Here’s the deal… Even though we live in a sophisticated, modern-day society, we still very much have the same genetic code as our hunter-gatherer ancestors. And interestingly enough, throughout most of our evolution as humans, we rarely – if ever – ate first thing in the morning.

In fact, the idea that breakfast is the most important meal of the day is one of the biggest nutrition myths known to man. Frankly, deciding to skip breakfast is the best decision I have ever made.

 

Not only are we programmed to skip breakfast, eat sparingly during the day and feast at night, but modern research is showing us that late night eating is actually good for us!

Is Late Night Eating Actually Good For You?

Getting the majority of your calories in the evening will actually increase dietary adherence, improve fat loss, increase muscle retention and boost health.

At first, the idea of skipping breakfast may seem daunting, but soon it will be the most rewarding dietary practice in your life. You’ll feel incredibly focused all day long and you’ll be able to revel in incredible meals while dropping fat and building muscle.

That said, there are a few tricks you can utilize to make intermittent fasting effortless. I showcase a couple of these in my full day of eating videos, but I go much more in-depth in my Aggressive Fat Loss Program.

In fact, my Aggressive Fat Loss program uses a unique approach to intermittent fasting to strip off 8-10 lbs of fat a month, while allowing you to enjoy a ton of dietary freedom – and yes: eat delicious meals at night.

Just take a look at the insane 6-week transformation below!

Paul averaged 2+ lbs of fat loss per week, dieting down to an extremely low body fat. Losing 2 lbs per week is challenging at 15-20% body fat. Dropping 2 lbs of fat at under 10% body fat is unheard of…

Will You Get Fat From Eating Late At Night?

This is one of the most common questions I get asked…

Here’s the fact of the matter: it doesn’t matter if you eat right before bed. Hell, it doesn’t even matter if you eat while sleeping (assuming that is possible).

If you’re in a calorie deficit you will drop fat, no question about it. I regularly enjoy a chocolate bar, cheese quesadillas or ice cream just minutes before dosing off.

And I do this while leaning down! It doesn’t interfere with fat loss because I ensure I’m in a calorie deficit.

Now make no mistake – if you’re eating breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks in between, late night eating will not fit the bill. But if you utilize daily fasts and eat just 2-3 meals per day, you can strategically place a big chunk of calories late into the evening.

For example, one of my most popular Instagram posts to date is a picture of me eating ice cream in bed… I think people were waiting for a fit guy to finally give them permission to enjoy carbs at night, haha!

Eating Ben and Jerry's Icecream right before bed doesn't make you fat…. Eating too many calories makes you fat ! I always like to save calories for late at night… Because I love late night eating… Interestingly enough, we have some very well designed studies comparing eating the majority of calories at night vs in the morning. What these studies show is improved health markers, greater fat loss and better muscle retention in the late night eating groups. From an evolutionary standpoint, it makes sense that humans are meant to eat a lot at night and little during the day. Also, there's no need to worry about carbs before bed hindering growth hormone release. GH is released in a pulse like fashion during the night. So overall GH will be unaffected even if you eat right before bed. In actuality, if eating closer to bedtime allows for improved sleep, that will only help you !!! Now the reason people say you shouldn't eat after 8pm is because by 8pm most people are already in a calorie surplus lol. Having more calories would tip them way over the surplus scale. But if you're intermittent fasting and saving a bunch of calories for night, then by all means, enjoy yourself !!!!! Anyways !!! Late night eating is awesome!!! 1⃣ Double tap if you agree 2⃣ Tag someone that needs to hear this #kinobody #icecream #benandjerrys

This Is The Truth About Late Night Eating

Eating before bed doesn’t make you fat! As long as you’re in a caloric deficit, you can eat as much as you want before bed and you will still lose weight. 

This is why I do intermittent fasting – because it allows me to eat feast at night and go to bed feeling full, satisfied and happy!
