Make sure to do some kind of evening activity after dinner. Excess calories can cause your body to get restless and the best cure for this is to use up that energy. Although you might have been told that exercise at night is not the best for you, doing some light exercise every evening is done by virtually all over-50s in China.
And during the daytime, ask yourself this question every meal: How will I use this fuel that’s going into my body today? Some types of fuel that are not burned end up turning into fat while you sleep.
