Eating your meals on time is as essential as eating healthy food. Eating late at night can lead to several health problems like weight gain, high blood sugar levels, heart problems, etc. So, it is essential to follow a healthy habit of eating your last meal of the day as soon as possible.
As per Ayurveda, the best time to eat your dinner is –
before सूर्यास्त (SURYASTA) i.e. before sunset.
Our body’s biological clock is set around sunrise and sunset. When the sun is at its peak in the daytime, our digestive strength is the strongest. After sunset, our digestion slows down due to the absence of sunlight and less physical activity.
Due to this, food consumed late at night does not get digested properly and becomes harmful to the health. As a result, it causes weight gain.
