I googled "eating at night and weight loss" and the first three links indicated that it is a myth that eating at night leads to weight gain or difficulty losing weight. Basically, they each state that since our bodies don't stop functioning just because we go to sleep we are still burning calories. Also, one mentioned that our bodies lose/gain weight over weeks not hours. Still, I've always heard the same rule which prompted me to ask the nutritionist in the first place. And I suppose, like anything else in dieting, late night snacking may affect each person differently. Personally, I've successfully lost weight while including snacks at night.
