Get this question all the time. There's nothing magical about the time of day ... it's the food choices during those times that are the challenge. Most people aren't like you and eating yogurt or bananas and peanut butter as snacks). That being said, if these are excess calories ... above and beyond your bodies need ... they'll get stored. Also, I wouldn't recommend sitting for a Thanksgiving meal and immediately falling asleep. Not only is your body less active so more likely to store the calories, but it could interrupt your sleep. If you're dividing your meals throughout the day, eating at night is OK, but try to lump more of the calories earlier and around a workout.
