I have a half an hour lunch break at work. I usually eat for the first 15 minutes, and then I sleep for the next 15. I'm weird like that, I can fall asleep anywhere and very quickly. I was wondering though, they say you shouldn't eat late at night before you sleep cuz then you won't digest the food and it'll just get stored as fat and whatever...but would that little nap after I eat at lunch have the same kind of effect? If I sleep that last 15 minutes, will the food I just ate get stored as fat and not get digested properly and waste the chance of getting the vitamins and protein and all that stuff that I need during the day?
hehe ok...well I was asking for experts cuz I wanted to know and be given some kind of explanation, and all ya said was "no" so I can either assume you're an expert on the subject and just didn't feel like explaining, or you have no idea and you're just messing with me...which I have no problem with, I got a sense of humor. hehe But, if you do know what you're talking about I would like to know more, if not, I guess I'll just wait for another reply from someone who does. Thanks, just in case you're not shittin me.
im not an expert, but maybe i can make some sense. it usually takes several hours to digest a decent sized meal. so if you're only sleeping for 15 minutes or so, why worry?
late night meals are said to "turn to fat" because you dont burn very many calories while you sleep compared to being awake and moving.
If you go back to work and continue to burn calories then you wont have to worry about storing those calories. You'll have the rest of the day to burn the calories you ate at lunch.
Actually deep sleep is the more anabolic times of your life, providing proper nutrition and good exercise. That is why you'll always hear "rest it" after working out and injuries.
What SAFTA4Life said.
I eat everynight right before i go to bed so that i don't wake up in the middle of the night hungry.
