Late night dinners may contribute to weight gain

Growing up my grandmother would say "kitchen closed" after dinner turning off the lights while we gathered for games, TV or visiting on the porch before everyone headed to bed... As with many of the lifestyle practices that earlier generations found "normal" - three meals a day, few snacks, home cooked meals, few packaged foods, and eating most meals together - research seems to point us back to what our grandparents knew all along. Not surprising, a new study found that a late dinner - around 10pm vs 6pm - resulted in higher blood sugar and lower amounts of fat burned. While a small study, the researchers found some people are more vulnerable to the impact of late-night eating, particularly those who have type 2 diabetes or are classified as obese.
