Split your dinner up. Eat a small amount before class and the rest after. Peppermint tea is good for helping digestion.

Your best bet is to avoid eating a lot of carbs so close to your bedtime. Carbs are energy, and when you don't need it (because you're sleeping), they're more likely to become stored fat. However, since you'd be coming straight from karate, chances are your glycogen stores will be depleted, so this reduced-carb advice might not be all that important to your situation.

By the way, I'm exhausted just reading about your 11-hour days followed by 2-hour karate classes...I haven't done that sort of thing since college.

when you eat is not relevant. It's calories in vs. calories out. As long as you aren't eating too much overall it doesn't matter when you eat. This tip was only intended to keep people from snacking all night long - and therefore taking in too many calories.

Go to class, get a great workout and go home to enjoy a wonderful healthy dinner.

I regularly don't get home from the gym until 9 pm or later, and I always eat dinner afterwards. I actually find that I don't need as large of a dinner then - something about working out makes me less hungry. But I am in bed by 11, and it hasn't been a problem. I think a lot of the rules about not eating after a certain hour are to keep people from snacking on empty calories. When you eat dinner at 9:30 and are in bed by 11, you don't have time for snacking after dinner!

I wouldn't worry about this so much. Can you have a nice snack in the afternoon, early enough so that it won't make you sick at Karate. Then a small dinner afterwards. That way you split the dinner in to two small meals, that might help.

I eat late, too

I try to cook a few dinners for the week so I can eat right when I get home from the gym (8-9pm some nights) and don't have to wait. I'll even portion them out and freeze them for a quick reheat.

The good thing, like someone previously mentioned, is I don't do any snacking after dinner, which is when most dieters have the most trouble.
