Question from Hockey Mom: I was told not to eat anything after 8 p.m. if I wanted to keep the weight off. Is that really true?
Answers - Diana Dyer, M.S., R.D. Ideally, calories in equals calories out over a 24-hour period. However, I do think that snacking after supper is a huge, unintended source of extra calories — and unappreciated calories in the big picture. So, if that's a weakness, I think that's a good self-strategy to not eat after you've already had your supper.
