I usually go to bed at 11:00 and I try to get my last snack/small meal in at 9:00. When is a good time to stop eating for the day? I usually have ice cream as the last thing I eat because it's easy calories for me and it's easy to make. Is this good or bad?

I am currently eating a bowl of over 1000 calories worth, then going to sleep in 30 mins... if you can sleep on a full stomach than eat whenever. Meal timing is irrelevant other than personal preference and has minimal to no affect on body composition

There is no "good" time to stop eating for the day. You're good to eat whenever as long as you're hitting your goals.

I would make the argument that a meal of ice cream every day is bad.

As far as meal timing, doesn't matter.

Just as long as you take your last swallow before you close your eyes

Would say that a food should not be considered healthy or unhealthy, and that as long as a person is consuming an adequate amount of micros/macros (and their diet is predominantly whole food) then there is no reason why they cannot consume a processed food if they so desire. I wouldn't say that consuming a processed food makes one's entire diet unhealthy, as that is like saying that somebody is a bad person because they have one bad habit :)

Not being difficult, by the way, just elaborating upon my thoughts~

Disregard anything this poster says.

Complete nonsense.

Meal timing doesnt matter.

Eat whenever it's convenient for you.

Some scientists argue that eating close (less than 3 hours) to bed time can limit the release of growth hormone during sleep. How credible this argument is you will have to research for yourself. It was discussed here: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=161736423

Sometimes I'll have chips and a glass of scotch in bed. Wife hates the crumbs.
