According to the traffic light clock you shouldn’t eat carbohydrate rich foods for dinner. After 5 pm your meal should be of proteins and vegetables, lettuces to provide vitamins and minerals.
The reason for this is that when carbohydrates, fats and proteins are eaten at the same time, the body primarily burns carbohydrates and the fats are stored in the body.
Normally we are no longer very active after dinner and therefore the body does not burn the fats, but stores them in the depot. If, however, no carbohydrates are ingested, the body immediately starts to burn fat to provide the nutrients to the cells. Foods from the green and yellow zone contain proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals.
