A LOT of articles have dealt with this subject. A LOT of people who are on a mission to lose weight are trying to stop themselves from eating in the evening past a certain time.
All my life I ate snacks at night. By snacks I do not mean potato chips, or other junk food. (I don't have any in the house) I mean cereal or oatmeal, some fruit, sometimes a sandwich etc. Many times my workout ends after 8 or after 9. I'm always hungry then. (If I don't eat, I wake up in the middle of the night really hungry and I must eat then:) ) It never created a problem for me.
I would think there are individual variables with this, just like anything else.
