Research suggests that having multiple smaller meals throughout the day has a positive effect on metabolism. There ought to be a gap of 3-5 hours between the meals to maintain reasonable energy and blood glucose levels. Eating at night to deal with stress, boredom or just binge-snacking if you aren’t asleep, can drastically increase weight. Remember people tend to eat potato chips, cookies, biscuits and other packaged edibles at night. Have dinner early, go for a walk and go to bed on time instead. Do not stay up till late at night if you tend to snack post-dinner. But overall, more than meal timings, the quantity of food consumed and the amount of calories burnt through exercise affects weight most significantly.
