In Traditional Chinese Medicine weight gain is due to the accumulation of dampness -fat and excess fluids- that is caused by overeating or improper eating habits. Improper eating habits such as eating late, consuming cold food and drinks or the indulgence in rich foods, put a strain on digestion and ultimately weakening its function. Night time is where the body repairs itself.
