Does Eating Late at Night Cause Weight Gain?
Morning, noon, or night ... it all comes down to calories.

This is a very commonly-believed weight loss myth. But it doesn't really matter when you eat, only how many calories you eat and burn in a day. Whether you're eating in the morning or at midnight, your body turns any extra calories into fat.

In fact, eating a light snack -- like cheese and crackers -- before bed may help you sleep better.
