Will Bulsiewicz, MD, joins "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll to explain that although you may love to eat late, those midnight munchies probably won't love you back. He will teach you about the problems it can cause from sleep to digestion to packing on pounds. 

Dr. B then answers viewer questions sent to The Doctor's Mailbag:

  • Could the same snack cause you to gain weight if you eat it later at night instead of earlier in the day? 
  • Is it better to eat three times a day, frequent small meals, or have extended fasts?
  • Why did doctors lower the recommended age for colon cancer screenings?
  • And many more!

Plus, Chuck reports on a study of nearly 6,000 people that shows eating fruit may help prevent you from developing diabetes.
