Many women who want to lose weight choose a well-known and simple diet — do not eat after six. Adherents of this diet claim that it works, but doctors and nutritionists do not support this optimism and give a lot of arguments against this diet.
In particular, such a long interval between meals is very harmful to the gallbladder and liver, because bile stagnates during a night’s rest — this can lead to the formation of stones. In addition, such a long break in food is also fraught with exacerbation of gastrointestinal diseases.
After a six-hour evening meal, you will probably have time to get hungry, so you are unlikely to fall asleep easily — that’s why experts advise you to allow yourself at least something sour-milk closer to bedtime.
So, you can follow the no-after‑6 diet if:
- you go to bed early
- your day starts at 6–7 in the morning
- you do not have problems with the gastrointestinal tract
- Do you like dairy products?
You absolutely should not use the “mouth lock after six” diet if:
- your day ends at twelve o’clock at night or later
- you’re not up until nine o’clock in the morning
- you have an ulcer or gastrointestinal problems
- kefir, yogurt or curdled milk disgust you
