Do you usually eat dinner before or after 7pm?
New York I expected but Georgia?
eating after 7 doesn't equal weight gain. all about calories in vs. calories out. eating close to bedtime may disrupt your sleep pattern a bit, but that's about all.
It's really more like at 7 pm.
If it were up to me I'd get home at a decent time and make dinner to eat it before 7. but I work currently work I retail...which means odd hours.
Sadly, usually after 7. Closer to 9. I get home late. Would eat around 6 if it was up to me.
I barely eat breakfast before 7 pm.
Eating after 7 does not make you fat. Overall caloric intake needs to be same or less than energy expended or you gain weight. Eating right before can disturb sleep, however.
I like sex
In summer I always eat later than in cold months when it gets dark earlier.
It's not about how late you eat but rather how many hours pass between your last meal and your bed time.
I eat small meals every 2 to 3 hours. I don't eat after 7 though. And I'm skinny so I believe it may be true because my father is very fat and I have the genetics but I manage perfectly with my weight like this and I'm close to even being under weight.
I've eaten dinner around 10pm for more than 20 years and have 8% body fat. I workout after 8pm three or more times a week. So the myth about gaining weight if you eat late does not apply to me. It's about calories & exercise.
Breakfast at 7am, lunch at noon, dinner at 6pm. That's been the rule since I was a tike. Now that I'm older the schedule only varies when other commitments take precedence.
My tummy makes the rumblies around then for a morsel of candied pecans.
If u eat right before going to sleep, u will have dreams. At least for me, and I'm fine w/that.
Due to military lifestyle and the time I get off, after 1900 is dinner.
Actually, you should eat small meals every 2 or 3 hours. This helps speed up your metabolism by giving it always something to do. If you eat at 7 or 6 and eat nothing for the rest of the night, you'll slow down your metabolism.

I usually eat around nine or ten. I work till eight. I've had several doctors tell me that eating after seven causing wait gain is a myth. It's all about calories vs. exercise.
I work through 8pm 5 days a week, and 9pm 1 day a week.
Eating after 7 can promote weight gain.
Actually, it's most often that we sit down to eat at 7.
@Kenzie we are working on an "ignore" and a "report" feature for the next release. Stay tuned...
I don't understand how people get hungry or whatever so early. I've always had dinner at least after 7:30.
After 7 makes you fat.
My wife and I both work 8-5 but are late most days, so we don't even get home until well after 6. Get kids gathered up, chores and stuff, dinner CAN'T be early.
Anyone else disappointed in what's happening to the comments?! Please please please give us a way to thumb down or report comments, and maybe have another rule page for people to agree to before commenting for the first time after an update.
it depends. if I'm actually having a real dinner, it will be before or around 7. But if I'm just eating leftovers or something, not a brand new meal, it'll be later, like maybe a snack at 8. I don't have a huge appetite unless I'm reminded to eat. :p
You will have trouble getting to sleep if you watch before bed
eating three hours or more before bed is an easy way to loose weight.
I eat at about 5-6:00 on most days.
After 7pm all the way bitches!!!! Late nighters rule, 8pm 4 life!!! Ya! Bam!!!!!
I eat before 5 most of the time.
My personal preference is 16:30, although I wake up around 06:00 without an alarm most days, so therefore I am an early bird (justifying meal time).
7pm is way too early
After. But then again I can't remember the last time I went to bed before midnight... What, it's summer?!
I average around 10-12 o' clock. Then again I do have an eating disorder.
We're heating dinner right now & it's 2a. Though unusual quite this late. We are night owls. My husband leaves for work in a cpl hrs. & we've had a really screwy sched lately bc we just relocated our store & have been working around the clock setting up to re-open for business. Brkfst & lunch = late
Before during the school year and after during the summer. People who post "first" should be made to go to bed with no dinner:))
Sometimes I don't even get home until 8:30
I have to eat by 5:30, or I am starving. To be fair, I also have to go to bed by 8 since I work the early shift at work.
