Be­fore You Beast Out

Whether you stop at the take-away on your way home from the club or scarf a plate of fries af­ter a night on the town, af­ter dark is the worst time to eat.

Nutri­tion­ist’s tip: If you’re risk­ing star­va­tion (or at least a killer han­gover), go ahead and in­dulge your crav­ing. Just fill up on wa­ter or caf­feine-free tea be­fore so you’ll eat less. Bon Ap­petit!
