First off, Does the core plan from Nutrisystem really work? Thanks for any comment. Second question.. I had to do some shopping and I got home very late. I didn't anticipate being gone that long, but somehow got caught up in shopping so I wasn't around for dinner. I could have easily gone to bed without eating tonight but I know people say you can't skip a meal! I ate my dinner at 10pm. I know NEITHER is a good option, but which one is the worse of the two - skip a meal or have it sit in your belly that late? I didn't eat my dessert - I don't care what anyone says - I'm done with food for the day!..

Yes sir! but... you might want to make sure and wait for another person here to confirm my answer as I am on the fence. Better yet, why don't you email the Nutrisystem guys because they can assist you better...

You did the right thing by eating late. Skipping is bad. Not only are you depriving yourself of important nutrients, but you are also setting yourself up for a fall. The hungrier we get, the harder it is to resist temptation..

The "Don't eat after X PM" rule is a myth. You can eat as late as you want. It doesn't make you gain weight, but it can affect the scale reading the next AM (because you haven't had to time to digest everything and pass it out of your system)...

Here's the truth about losing weight......


Doesn't matter what time of day you eat. If you burn off more calories than you take in you WILL drop pounds. The other poster was super late and the scale will show it because it hasn't had time t work through your system. But it doesn't mean you've gain real weight from FAT. Just that un-digested food is sitting in your colon..

Personally I've eaten my snack at 2am before because having no food for such a long time makes your body go too low with blood sugar and can cause it to burn off muscle for energy just to keep you breathing at night. It needs fuel to get you through the night...

I normally eat at 6pm, but when I'm in "shopping mode" I don't think about food! LOL I wasn't paying attention to the time - I had no idea it was that late. I didn't know what to do - I was tired and wasn't really all that hungry but decided to at least eat aNutrisystemdinner and skip dessert. Is that really a myth that people shouldn't eat after a certain time? It just seems like that's what all professionals say. To me - it just seems logical because at the end of the day you're not as active and then you go to sleep. I'm not quite sure what my body is doing with those calories during that time - I'm a little confused right now. It has to process it a little differently during the day than at night, right?..

You asked which is worse.....

Not eating all your food is worse than eating it late at night. It doesn't matter what time you eat the not eating late diet myth was busted years ago...

Yesterday I called for a question, and since I was on the phone with a counselor (I know, Michelle, you'll say it was the bear distribution person.


I also went over my daily food intake. She said I should not be eating 2 hours before going to bed...

OMG - WOW! Thanks for clarifying that! I'm in shock - I guess I was brainwashed by this for many years - I had no idea!!!.

Some health experts do suggest not eating after a certain hour of day, but this is not because your body processes food differently at night. Instead, setting a time beyond which you will not eat reduces the likelihood of snacking on calorie-laden foods, which in turn reduces your total calorie input for the day..


This is a tricky onetechnically, the time of day you eat doesnt affect how your body processes food. What matters is your total calorie intake and how much you exercise during the day. However, people who eat late at night tend to choose high-calorie foods that their bodies can do without. If you are one of these people, avoiding food after dinner may help you deter weight gainor even promote weight loss. But, if you miss a healthful dinner at 6:00, theres no reason not to eat it at 9:00!..

I think you did right by eating at night if you missed a meal. I wouldn't suggest doing it on a regular basis (unless you have an odd work schedule)..

I eat myNutrisystemdessert every night around 9pm. I think it IS a myth about not eating after 6pm. My DH (who has no weight problem) eats the majority of his daily intake at night. Like someone else said, it's all about calories in/calories out in a 24-hr period...

Next time you are planning a late shopping trip, how about having your dinner at lunch time, and take along a lunch bar for dinner...
