Food is our source of life and proper and balanced diet affects the quality of our health. Depending on what kind of food we consume, the function of our metabolism, enzyme and hormone balance in the body, as well as our body weight will also depend on.
If you skip a meal, and then late in the evening make up a lavish dinner, you will not do anything good for yourself, even on the contrary, you only do harm to your body.
Entering a large number of calories in the evening, especially intake of complex carbohydrates which require a longer period of digestion will cause a buildup of fat and calories with the association of the impossibility of spending calories before going to sleep.
What are the foods that we shouldn’t take late at night?
1. Whole grains things
If you believed that cereal will be replacement for dinner or to reduce the number of total calories, you're wrong. Grains are carbohydrate foods that contain a lot of sugar and a little permeable fiber. All the sugar that enters in the body before sleep will not be able to metabolized, and the balance of insulin will be disrupted, and in the morning we’ll feel a strong hunger.
For this reason, don’t think of oatmeal or muesli as an easy dinner, it is better to replace them with low-fat yogurt.
2. Spicy foods
Foods that contain a lot of strong spices such as chilli, pepper, curry is a food that can’t eat late at night. These foods are rich in calories, especially if these spices combined with grilled meats. Too much fat, salt and sugar will only burden the body before sleep.
Instead of tortillas with Mexican spices, try to combine sandwich with turkey meat and lettuce.
3. Fatty foods
A combination of cheeseburger and French fries is such a great combination, but not for dinner. Fat foods will burden the metabolism, blood vessels, and accumulate fat around the waist. Throw out this food from evening menu, and replace it with a piece of cooked lean beef or chicken.
Cube of chocolate is not much, but most of us don’t stop there. Many of refined sugar and calories can only burden the dream and we’ll wake up sluggish and lethargic. If you can’t live without sweets, especially in the evening, take the integral biscuits without sugar or grease cocoa cream without sugar.
Fruit juices and soda drinks are not designed for use in the late evening. As a rule, you shouldn’t use them at all, but if you must, avoid them late at night. It is best to replace juices in the evening with water or unsweetened herbal tea.
