If you've ever tried to lose weight, you've heard the classic tip: don't eat after 7pm.
Eating after 7pm not only causes you to lose weight slower, it can also cause some serious health problems. When you eat past 7pm, it doesn't allow your body to fully relax while you sleep. If your body doesn't sleep properly, it tends to crave unhealthy carbs and fats, which isn't what you want.
But sometimes it's hard not to eat past 7pm. You're watching TV and you want to snack, you're a bored eater, or maybe you just start to feel hungry in general. Luckily, there are some foods that are better to eat after 7pm if you do suddenly get hit with a craving!
Pistachios contain Adiponectin, which is a fat that burns other fats (weird, right?) They are the most nutrient dense nuts for the least amount of calories, so they make a perfect bed-time snack.
Avocados are another food that uses 'good' fats to burn 'bad' fats. They also contain magnesium, which are a great sleep-aid.
White Meat Turkey
No, you won't have to cook a Thanksgiving turkey every week. Deli meat will do as well! Turkey is high in lean protein and contains Tryptophan which helps you sleep.
But there's more than just these foods!
