    Last meal of the day - how long before bed?

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    How many hours before bedtime is your last meal of the day... and do you have any 'snacks' after that?
    :-)

    I eat around 2-3 pm then do CrossFit at 6.30 pm and don't eat after. I am in bed about 9 pm, so 6-7 hours before bed.

    3-4 hours normally, usually no snacks, but once in a while I might have some cheese half hour before bed.

    I probably go 5-8 hours between dinner and sleep. No snacking or anything like that either, it helps me wake up with a bit more focus and drive the next day. I'm up for an hour or so, eat breakfast, then it's off to work or some other activity. I've never bothered with fasting, one meal a day, or any of that because 3 squares a day based on real food seems to be working just fine.
    Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who has said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own experience.

    In the mind of the beginner, there are many possibilities; in the mind of the expert, there are few.

    I need to do this, it sounds like it would work for me. I notice that when I eat closer to bedtime and I need to wake up for work, waking up is harder.

    Incidently, the whole don't eat before bed or you will gain weight has been proven to be bullshit. Now if eating affects your sleep that is different of course. But no worries on the weight thing.
