3. Physically Active People Need More Protein.
While it’s true that you need protein to build muscle, the Average western diet contains more than enough of the stuff. Consuming too much protein is, in fact, the bigger issue here.
4. You Gain More Weight From Food Eaten After 8PM.
A calorie is a calorie, whether you consume it at 3PM or 3AM. †It may take a little longer for your body to burn off that late-night bowl of ice cream than it will your lunch, since you’re more active during the day, but timing isn’t the issue.
The problem here is that late-night snackers have a tendency to overeat because they haven’t eaten balanced, regular meals through out the day. Want to cut out that late-night snacking? Don’t skimp on breakfast, lunch and dinner!
