It's 11pm and you had dinner at 6pm. You tiptoe to the fridge with a rumbling tummy and try to find a snack. The only problem is, you don't want to destroy your diet - you've been so good all day.
I think we can all relate to having the late-night munchies, but did you know that depriving yourself of that snack might actually be BAD for your health?
For starters, a hungry tummy is likely to make you restless, which causes poor sleep patterns. Studies show that sleeping fewer than five hours a night can actually increase your chances of gaining weight. Huh. Who'd have thought that eating could help you lose weight.
