“People tend to say that when you eat late at night, you would get pot belly. It is not true,” he said matter-of-factly.

He went on to explain that there must be some physical activity between the time one eats and the time they sleep to ensure that digestion takes place, implying that eating late at night does not cause pot belly but eating and sleeping afterwards is what does cause pot belly.

‘So you can say “Oh for me, I eat my supper at 6 pm I don’t eat late at night.” If you eat at 6 pm and 6:15 pm you are sleeping and if someone eats at 11 pm and sleeps at 1am you the one eating at 6 pm has done nothing.

But make sure that you wait enough, move around, do some brisk walking, etc, before you sleep,” he explained.
