What Goes On In The Body?
When you consume a meal late at night, the body is more likely to store it as fat instead of burning those calories as energy. Fluctuations in your sleep cycle can also prompt such results in your body. Such as, calories you consume outside of your regular sleep/wake cycle will make it harder for your body to burn fat.
Hence, weight gain becomes inevitable. It suggests that the body works according to the rhythm you create and maintain.
What Else Is At Stake?
Other than weight gain, other problems can also arise due to late dinners. Commonly, I see cases of higher levels of blood sugar, indigestion, and problems with sleeping.
