Consuming a healthy well-balanced and calorie conscious dinner is important for replacing the nutrients and energy that was required to exist throughout the day.
In addition, it is important to provide the body with all of the nutrients required for it to perform the countless rejuvenating functions that occur while the body sleeps (i.e. muscle growth, tissue repair, protein synthesis, and the release of growth hormones...).
It is recommended that most individuals consume their dinner meal at least 4 to 6 hours before retiring for sleep. In addition, since most individuals reduce their activity level after their dinner meal, it is also recommended that the meal be lower in total calories.
By doing so, the body will not only have a longer time to breakdown and digest the food, but will also have a lower number of calories to store as fat as well.
