Still a common accepted myth that it’s better to eat earlier in the day and less at night; Feasting late can supposedly ruin your fat loss and add some extra layers of squish to your frame.

This myth is over 100 years old and based upon the “eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a queen and dinner like a pauper” quote

In the meantime some decent research has been done!
