Why should you Avoid Late Dinner? By Dietician in Nepean Sea Road South Mumbai Geetanjali Ahuja (Mengi)  Why should you Avoid Late Dinner? Indian food is a boon to someone who wants to improve the metabolism. Indian ways of eating food is also an advantage because ancient Indians used to eat very timely meals. The meals used to be balanced with carbohydrates, proteins and fats so there was hardly any imbalance of nutrients. This imbalance of nutrients is the major cause of lifestyle diseases like diabetes, cancer and high blood pressure. Being away from native food and food habits is a major mistake that people do. In 1900s, Indians were much healthy than today, though with less medical assistance the life expectancy was low but with right food at the right time helped them survive without any life threatening diseases. Today we are fighting obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure and other major diseases as a result of fad diets, sedentary lifestyle. Weight loss is a priority in everyones life now a days. There are very few individuals who are appropriate to their height and weight. Timing of dinner differs for everyone. Therefore it leads to the above health issues so, here are some of the reasons why you should avoid late dinner. - The body is like a well-oiled machine. It needs fuel to perform all the functions of the body. - Human body is designed to work in a circadian rhythm, where it burns a lot of calories in the first half of the day and in the later half it slows down. Thus one should eat more in the mornings all throughout and have very light meals from evening to night. - Late dinners may lead to stomach disorders like irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerates colitis, pancreatitis and so on. If you can't avoid late night dinner then have a lighter meal high on proteins and fibre which helps to stay full throughout the night. Some stew with beans or egg whites, Stir fry veggies with low fat paneer or Tofu or minced chicken or steamed fish can be eaten to avoid binging on food late night.
