If you are a late night eater this normally isn't good for your digestive system. You won't have time to digest your food before going to bed. If you are trying to lose weight it is best to eat a larger meal in the middle of the day and a very light meal at night. Give yourself several hours to digest your food before going to bed.

I don't think so, you know why? Because based on my experience , there was a time that I followed " After Six" diet. I have done it for 6 months, but the longer I was doing it, the more I starve from 8 pm to 12 midnight. So, I had no choice but to eat at 12 MN. This is what I understood, our body is connected to each other. Even when our mind says " don't eat after 8 pm", but when our stomach needs it and says " I'm starving, please do something!"So you then think you broke the rules of your diet. Both, actually coordinates with the agreement as the mind follows the stomach to get a bite but the stomach needs to get just as much as the mind wants. So, when the mind is set to do the diet ,then it can control the stomach how much to be stored. No need, to crucify yourself because it is done once and for all. What I meant is, no need to punish yourself by starving after 8pm because all we need is  "discipline".

I do not know. What I do know is that you can not sleep right away when you've eaten. You have to wait two hours later. This so that the body can process the food well.

I may be wrong, but you should wait an hour and try to do cardio so you can burn those calories that you have eaten. And obviously, wait two hours after the meal.

I don't think so but what i know and have done my research on is.Its advisable to eat light meals at night because there's no energy used at night.

Heavy diet's should be taken in the morning and at noon because during the day the body plus the the brain need energy to enable a person do his daily activaties.

Taking supper late past 8 pm doesn't affect one's health because it depends with what time one's sleeping.Taking fruit juice after dinner is good for the health.

You can eat food after 8pm and still not have your health affected. Just make sure that you do not go to bed immediately after your meal. Give it an hour and half or more. You can even take a walk. The idea behind this is to increase the rate of digestion and prevent fat from accumulating in the body. Which is also another reason to choose the kind of food you'll eat at night. Make it light, less fatty and healthy. 

It usually can take up to eight hours or less for your food to digest completely without disruption so even when you eat before 8, it won't be popping out until early in the morning. So it is advised to eat at 8pm or before for quicker digestion since activities at night that would have increased digestion is greatly reduced.
