What time does kitchen is closed for the night? Have heard on Dr.Oz today that kitchen is closed at 8:30 sharp. The eating stops as well. I sometimes eat late around 9/10pm with a snack...since this summer its hot to cook. I think will take his advice on the kitchen is closed at 8:30pm.

Just curious on what others eating stop time frame goes.. Thank you for your input.. :)

I shoot for an earlier dinner between 5:00 and 6:00, preferably closer to 5:00. This gives me time for an evening walk after which I no longer care to eat. So I guess the kitchen closes around 6:00.

I very frequently have a snack right before bed so I reckon for me, it closes when I go to bed :o :D

Kitchen closes at 6 pm :)

Yup, it closes as soon as dinners done, so right around 6PM.

I will eat right up to bed if I have the calories. Not sleeping well because of hunger = epic plan fail for me.

I stop eating around 9-10pm...but I don't go to bed until 2-3am.

never closes. If I'm hungry before bed, I have something to eat unless I suspect it's just "head hunger". In that case I get to bed early before I give in to it.

I usually eat dinner around 6:30-7pm. Rarely do I eat anything after that. I eat lunch early (around 11:30am) so by the time 6:30 rolls around I'm pretty hungry!

Since my work schedule varies so much, the time my kitchen closes varies. It usually depends on how many calories I have left for the day. I'll eat until I get close which could be midnight, 1am, or 2am.

I am a night owl, so my kitchen closes kind of late. I work late shifts, and don't usually get out of bed until around 1:00. I have my "dinner" at 7:00 when it's my break time at work, and then when I get home around midnight, I'll eat a little something then, too. So that's usually about 12:00 or 1:00am. Usually, if I don't eat my snack when I get home, I either wake up with hunger pains or can't get to sleep because my tummy is growling so much!

I close the kitchen at 8, except on a Monday when I don't get in until 8 and close at 9. If I've got calories left, tough luck.

My biggest meal of the day is at noon. I eat lighter as the day goes on. And generally, never eat past 6pm. I tend to go to bed early as I am an early riser and I can't sleep on a heavy stomach.

I'm another one who eats a snack sometimes right before bed. I've allotted the calories for it, so it's not an issue.

But initially, to get a grip on the night time munchies, I DID set a kitchen closed time. I HAD to break the habit of constant mindless eating at night (not to mention other times of day ;) ), and making a STRICT, NO MATTER WHAT kitchen closed time did the trick.

I eat my larger meal at lunch time, have a light dinner and finally learned to quit eating after dinner. I caught on that the hunger pains go away if you ignore them. What a revelation LOL. I would say our kitchen is closed by 6:30 pm.
