This weight loss idea is very widespread. The general concept involves not eating anything after 6pm, thus forcing your body to expend all of the extra calories that you have eaten throughout the day. Does it work? Well, of course it does! This diet works mainly because you are practically starving yourself for one-third of your day, each day.
There are many nutritionists that are actively against using this diet because of the starvation factor. It is considered to be a major stress on the body. It is also quite hard to maintain in real life. In the course of a typical work day many people do not come home until after 7 pm, or later. It is very hard for them to eat their dinner prior to 6pm since it does not coincide with their schedule.
I personally suggest using this diet with a few alterations to make it work for you. There is a simple and easy alteration that you can make. Change the diet so that you do not eat for four hours before you go the bed. If you don’t go to bed until midnight, then don’t eat after 8pm. If you don’t go to bed until 2 am, don’t eat after ten. It’s as simple as that!
