The Timing Dilemma
So what is the problem with eating this food after 7 PM? Well, one of the main reasons is how it affects our digestion. This food can take a long time to digest, especially if it has a lot of fat and protein. Eating it late at night can make our digestion worse and make it hard for us to sleep well. It can also make us feel bloated, gassy, or have heartburn or stomach pain, which are not nice things to have at night.
Potential Weight Gain
Another reason to avoid this food after 7 PM is how it can make us gain weight. The calories it has, if we do not use them up by moving or burning them off, can turn into fat in our body, making us heavier over time. This can also make us more likely to get sick from things like diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
