NOOOO! Eating after 6p (or 7p or 8p) WILL NOT make you fat!
Your body does not know what time it is!
WHAT you eat any time of the day matters more. Especially what you eat when you're winding down and not moving much (late night). You do want to wait at least 2 hours before going to bed for digestion.
Make sure you're eating due to hunger and not boredom or because you're just feeling snacky.
Get in proteins and veggies if super hungry as a meal or in the form of a shake or plain Greek yogurt with a little fruit added.
Stay away from starches at night unless you had a tough workout prior.
My late night dinner (seriously 10:30p) last night consisted of ginormous (freaking huge) seared spicy shrimp, kale and though they look like mashed potatoes, mashed cauliflower. Though I'm usually in (or on my way) to bed at 10p, an unexpected meeting lasted long and I was starving because I hadn't eaten since lunch.
It only took 20min including chopping! I didn't go to bed until 1a, so I even got in 3 hours for digestion.
DO NOT starve yourself if you're hungry at night!
