In an ideal world we should eat our evening meal before 7 pm. This is because our digestion is still going strong, and so proteins and carbohydrates are more easily digested.

The best ratio for portion size is one-third protein to a two-thirds combination of vegetables and carbohydrate. There are many ways that this combination can be put together and here we share some ideas.
