This is one of the most common scenarios that we have observed.You have had a hectic day and didn't have time to grab a bite.You reach home and have a meal lets say 400 calories meal.
When you go to scales, it is astonishingly on the wrong side of the numbers you are looking at .WHY??????????
Well,our bodies work on demand and supply.If you are running ,the caloric requirement is higher than when you are lying on the bed reading a book.If you take a high calorie meal at night and then go to sleep,because of the very low demand,most of the calories will be stored as fat even though you have stayed within limits of your daily caloric requirement.
Distribute your calories so that you take up around 2/3rds till afternoon and rest in the evening.
