dr This morning’s Michael Mosley shared more of his weight loss expertise and this time told us what time of the day to eat our dinner to have the best hopes of losing the pounds
Weight loss expert Dr. Michael Mosley, shared the best time to eat to help shed some extra wood.
Many of us will be hoping to enjoy the summer sun after first shedding a few pounds post lockdown, and there are many different ways people can try to do this.
Small changes to your diet and exercise can also help, and various studies support the idea that changing the time of day you eat, what you eat, and how much of it can affect how much weight you lose over a period of time.
The award-winning This Morning Diet Man is the founder of the Fast 800 diet, which involves fasting and eating at specific times.
So when to eat?
What time of day should I eat to lose weight?
according to dr Michael Mosley’s best time of day to eat is before 8 p.m., hours before bed.
Mosley explained, “Try to stop eating by 8 p.m. and don’t eat anything with calories after that.”
It’s important to avoid calories just before you fall asleep because what you eat later “hangs around in your system for a much longer time.”
dr Mosley added: “The temptation is to eat cheese and biscuits late into the night. While the notion that cheese causes nightmares is an utter myth, it will obviously eat up quite a few calories late at night.
“And we know that fat and sugar that you eat later in the night just hangs around in your system much, much longer because your body is just shutting down for the night.
“Your digestive process will grind to a halt, and he’s really not going to appreciate that late-night snack.”
Of course, changing the time of day isn’t a problem if you eat poorly and don’t get enough exercise. It’s best to focus on that before making these minor changes, although sometimes every little thing helps.
Sleep tips from Michael Mosley.
After Michael Mosley’s advice not to eat right before bed, Michael Mosley also has tips on how to help people fall asleep if they’re having trouble falling asleep.
Speaking to former BBC breakfast presenter Dan Walker on the Newscast podcast, Dr. Mosley, people should follow the “15 minute rule.”
He said: “The advice is broadly the 15 minute rule. If you’re still awake after 15 minutes, get up and do something boring until you feel sleepy, then go back to bed. The rule is to associate bed with sleep and sex and nothing else. No Twitter, no TV, nothing else.”
Experts from the University of Oxford also advise this particular method of getting some sleep, and they said people should just guess what fifteen minutes is rather than looking at the clock.
They said spending time awake in bed means that “bed can be associated with wakefulness, frustration, or anxiety about going to sleep.”
