The Doctors: Carbs Before Bed
Eating carbs at night can make you gain weight, right? That’s what we’ve been hearing, but is it true? Dr Rachael Ross said she always tells people to eat their carb-loaded meals earlier in the day so that they have time to burn it off before going to bed. If you’re asleep, your metabolism slows down, which means you can’t burn off all the carbs.
It comes down to how much you’re eating throughout the day in total. If you eat simple carbs or a sweet snack before bed, you’re likely going to gain weight. Complex carbs don’t cause a blood sugar spike, which means you’re not storing as much fat.
Dr Rachael enjoys popcicles before bed, while Dr Travis Stork enjoys either dark chocolate or Greek yogurt with a little honey. What’s your go-to bedtime snack?
