Afternoons, around 3.23 pm, seem to be the time for most people to forget their best intentions to eat healthily, according to researchers for the Atkins Diet.

A survey that involved 1,250 people, undertaken by the researchers reveals that several factors are at work. Afternoons are when the energy level sinks down dramatically and stress and boredom sets in. So, food becomes the emotional outlet in restoring the equilibrium to carry through the rest of the day. Among the people surveyed, 62 per cent give up on their dieting at around the time in the afternoon that researchers had worked out.

So, the message that emerges from the study is clear: Don't worry about the effect of late night snacks; it is the afternoon snacking that is the culprit!
