Myth 5: Refraining from carbs after 6 p.m.
Fact: Carbohydrates can be consumed any time
Lately we have heard enough about why carbs can be dangerous and why they should be avoided. Is all we hear really true? The time of the day carbs are consumed does not play any significant role. The quality of carbs does though and you really should cut down on candies and biscuits. But this is the rule to follow any time of day and not only late nights. Healthy carbs that we find in vegetables cannot do harm to our diet. Even if you eat wholegrain bread or a piece of fruit after 6 p.m., you will not get fatter instantly. Keep track of the calories you consume throughout the day. Only extra calories will be stores as fat.
