1. Myth: Eating at night makes you fat.
Truth: There’s no proof for this myth! Scientists at Oregon Health & Science University carried out tests on 47 female monkeys and found no link between when the animals ate and whether or not they put on weight. Dr Judy Cameron of the study concluded that calories count, whenever you eat them. Nigel Denby of the British Dietetic Association backed the findings ”The bottom line is a calorie is a calorie whenever you eat it,” he told BBC News Online. ”Your body doesn’t really recognize what time of day it is.”
