The truth behind the "After 6 Diet"

We have heard from different celebrity endorsers that one can lose weight if you don't eat after 6 pm. This isn't exactly a myth and researchers can't say that it's absolutely untrue. There are circumstances that may contribute to its working on people who are, let's say junk food addicts. Not eating after six would definitely benefit them because their salt and calorie intakes would be reduced. But if you beleive you can eat with no holds barred the whole day and just stop at 6pm, then you have to rethink your diet. the key to good eating habits is getting proper nutrition from balanced meals. Even eating several light meals a day is all right. It is the daily caloric intake, not any evening curfew, which determines weight loss or gain.


  1. For me, I try not to eat after 8pm but sometimes I do get hungry after 8pm and I choose to eat just fruits : )

  2. I try not to eat later that 6pm too but like everyone I do get hungry later sometime so I usually eat fruit or yogurt. That works well for me. I do eat healthy all day long so I am sure that makes a difference too.

    Have a wonderful day!

    Love and Blessings,

  3. i can't avoid eating after 6 LOL if i did that i would end up being so hungry at around 10 and eat a whole lot!

  4. My Mom is doing this routine. Not eating dinner or food after 6. We are observing if something positve will happen.
