OKay, i had a quick question...
Im generally a late-night eater. and i havent noticed me, eating a No carb snack, late at night, effects Ketosis or weight loss.. but i know a lot of people belive that eating after 8pm or so will inhibit their weight loss, so i was wondering... does it matter for us low carber's? -- so far ive been able to still lose weight and still have that snack at 11pm. but would i lose MORE? i suppose i could try it, but thought id ask for a few opinions or experiences. :)
sometimes..(pretty rarely) like last night. it will make me want carbs.. and i ended up with the Apple Pie incedent of 09. All which sparked the question, so... Id like to hear from you all!

I've been doing low carb for almost three weeks now and I work second shift, most of the time I don't get out of work until 11PM-12AM, and I usually make my dinner around then. I've been steadily losing while doing this! From my experience, I really don't think it matters.

I agree. I work second shift as well, and go to the gym directly afterwards. Believe me, I'm hungry while at work but want to work out on an empty stomach. When I get home, I snack on cheese, sunflower seeds, whatever is the lowest carb I can get my hands on.

I think that 7pm/8pm rule is for those who work 1st shift as we tend to go to bed a lot later than they do (obviously).
