I read a book about health and tips on how to eat and not gain weight, one of them is “Eat Light Dinner”. Of all the meals of the day, dinner should be the lightest whenever possible. Keep in mind that at dinner, few of us require large portions, if any of the starchy carbohydrates, like pasta, bread, potatoes or rice. if your going to eat starches, you’re better off eating them earlier in the day when your body needs the fuel and is more likely to burn it off safely. Also we should finish eating dinner at least three hours before bed.
