Problem is many eat a full evening meal just a couple of hours before bed. Not only can this cause sleep discomfort but it cancels out the nighttime calories you would have burned while asleep. So, try this, eat your evening meal earlier before bed and eat only enough so you will become hungry at bedtime.

Take ONE bite or swig of food then hop into bed. This will stop the hunger and send blood to your stomach to digest your ONE bite, which will induce sleep. The bite will be burned off in less than an hour and you will wake up lighter. Good luck with yours! I read the book and followed the non-dairy, no sugar, no starch or processed foods for 30 days.
