Myth: Late night eating causes weight gain.

While there are some reasons to avoid late night indulging, weight gain is not inherently connected to the time of day you eat. What will more likely cause those extra pounds is imbalance between calorie intake and output. The danger in late night eating often comes with stress eating, cravings, or simply letting a snack size get out of control.

Instead of completely banning the "midnight snack," aim for healthier choices. Pay closer attention to portion control by avoiding snacking while in front of the TV. Pick treats packaged in smaller sizes or portion your own rather than eating out of the bag. Give some healtheir snack options a shot like low-fat yogurt or fruit.
