Yes, avoiding eating meals after 7 pm may help with weight loss, but the practice must be supported with eating on a regular schedule. This concept is commonly called Intermittent Fasting or Intermittent Energy Restriction, and is a voluntary cycle of fasting and eating meals at regular time intervals.
Under the periodic fasting and the daily time-restricted feeding, people can avoid eating meals after 7 pm to eat in the morning the very next day.
The available published evidence does not confirm whether avoiding meals for a certain duration will reduce weight without hampering metabolic activities in the body. Some research papers suggest intermittent fasting is beneficial, whereas others recommend more clinical studies for the same. However, all these studies cohesively claim that types of intermittent fasting show changes in weight and metabolic parameters associated with health conditions like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, etc.
In conclusion, we need more scientific evidence to understand the benefits of intermittent fasting even while the strategy shows changes in weight and various metabolic parameters within the body.
