Eating after a certain hour and weight gain… My Rant!

Hey everyone just waiting for my next client and was scrolling through my Facebook feed when I came across a post about eating after a certin hour and how it will contribute to weight gain written by a NASM CPT. I know this is a popular belief but in actuality it’s a myth. Your body doesn’t shut down at night, it’s always plugged in and burning calories. The challenge people have with eating late is they are usually entering into a calorie surplus for the day and this is why someone would gain weight. People look to us as professionals to provide accurate information as trainers there’s no harm in not knowing something (I will never claim to know it all, I’m always seeking out more information) but please lets not be the ones to perpetuate industry myths. Let do our due diligence and recerch the information we disseminate and use reputable sources. Let’s use science not gym sience. If your new to exercising or a new trainer searching for more information a book I recommend is Fitness or Fiction The Truth About Diet and Exercise by Brent Brookbush . Its great read and you don’t need a PHD to follow along, you may find it dispels some long held beliefs that even you may have.  Did you hear something that your not sure is correct and would like to fine out if its true post it or send us a message and we”ll try to get the correct answer for you.Thanks for listening to my rant!
