4 Nighttime Habits That Cause Weight Gain

What you do at night can have a serious impact on your weight loss efforts. To help you make healthy weight loss-related choices in addition to taking Phentermine 37.5mg, review what experts want you to know.


Eating too many snacks is a common weight loss issue. 

“Even if you’re aware enough to adhere to a super healthy diet during the day, if you are an avid nighttime snacker, you could be sabotaging yourself,” says registered dietitian Destini Moody, RDN, CSSD, LD. “Snacks, even healthy ones, can quickly add up in calories over time. This is especially true if you gravitate toward carb-heavy snacks like chips, crackers, and cookies. These snacks digest quickly and don’t keep you feeling full for long, so sometimes you find yourself endlessly snacking.”

Skipping Dinner

It is never a good idea to skip dinner.

“Skipping dinner or substituting dinner with small snacks can be detrimental,” Moody warns. “This can cause your hunger in the morning to shift into overdrive, which can cause you to eat more calories the following day. This effect is even more profound if you’re the sort of person who doesn’t eat a proper breakfast, either.”

Eating Too Close to Bedtime

Try to stop eating a few hours before you normally go to bed.

“Digesting food requires a lot of metabolic energy for your body to expend. To get quality sleep, your body needs to shut down, and it’s difficult for your body to do that if it is digesting a meal. The bigger your meal, the more lack of sleep can negatively impact your weight,” says Moody.

Looking at Your Phone

Putting the phone down before bed is strongly recommended.

“Most of us have heard by now that the blue light projected from your phone stimulates the brain in a way that makes it difficult to sleep, something we’ve already established is detrimental. However, scrolling on your phone also indicates boredom, and many of us turn to food when we’re bored just to give ourselves something enjoyable to do. This can lead to us eating calories we don’t need,” says Moody.For more about fast weight loss with Phentermine pills, please contact today.
