In brief: Metabolism

Night time is not a good time to eat for anybody.
The metabolism is in anabolic state and even if you have a low calorie diet you will still gain weight. In diabetics this balance is even more fragile.If the blood sugar is low a small snack with slow absoprtion carbs its recommended.
