 You're my hero.

Saturday night at 11 o'clock I ate 10 fruit scones and 8 "own brand" snickers bars. By 12 o'clock I felt sickly, went to sleep at 1am, then woke up with a bad stomach at 5am.

Explain that then?!

I haven't eaten Special K since they changed the size of the flakes.  They used to be really small and tasty then they changed them so they were flat and slightly larger than cornflakes. Does anyone else remember this (circa 1979 probably)

Do I remember this? you bet I do!

It was my favourite cereal.

The small light and crispy Special K was changed for what it is now. 

Same box, different product. I assumed they'd made a manufacturing mistake.

The only mistake was the marketing department. Clearly they thought the consumer was only interested in the packaging not what was inside it.

On reflection, I wish on those responsible for this slight of product, hemorrhoids that kill.

It depends if you're trying to lose weight or not.

Question is, what had you had to drink before you ate that?

I tend to eat all my calories before doing the exercise as I find my stomach a bit delicate after a hard session.  However, if I am hungry in the evening then I will eat whatever the time is.

The myth about storing evening food as fat is just a myth.  It has been proven that people who eat in the evening often gain more weight than those that don't but not because it is stored as fat.  There are two other explanations:

1) Your digestion tends to slow down overnight so some of what you eat in the evening could still be in your stomach the next day.  If you then go on to have a normal or large breakfast then you could be eating more food than you need.

2) A lot of people who eat in the evening are snacking on high calorie foods, such as crisps, chocolate and popcorn when watching a film late at night, or a kebab or curry after the pub.  If you do this on top of eating a proper evening meal earlier in the evening then you will be eating more than your body requires.

In both cases it is because of over eating, not the time of day at which the food is eaten.

Dodgy pint earlier in the evening would be my educated guess

Do all of you only eat healthy food ?

I'll eat anything, curry being my favourite

Curry isn't necessarily unhealthy!

I haven't had an alcoholic drink since sometime in october, I had one pint of cider. Before that the last time I drank alcohol was August. As you may have gathered I barely drink.

I don't eat late at night because it stops me from sleeping. I also found that when I have tried different ways of healthy eating, I lost half a stone in a week by not eating anything after half 6 in the evening.

If I'm doing a big run first thing, I tend to have something to eat before I go to bed, but not *right* before sleep. I don't like eating before I run in early mornings. I find this works well for me. If I'm just doing a 10k early I won't always eat unless specifically hungry.
