Late Night Dinner or Dinner Just Before Sleep

Dinner should be sumptuous that satisfies one after whole day activity. This is the general idea about Dinner, where as in actuality Dinner should be taken in an amount which is nearly half from the Lunch. On top of heavy dinner if we take it late night it compounds the health problems. For many of us night time meal is the most significant eating time and substantial thing we eat all day.
According to Physician Jamie A. Koufman late night heavy meal followed by little or no activity can damage or at least affect badly systems of our body. These systems are those who generally process the food. If food is not processed well no energy will be created and we will fall sick.
For absorbing the nutrients in the food we eat, Proper digestion is critical which also discards bad things in our food. 
Also our bodies are not designed for big meals and then collapsing on the couch or the bed afterwards. People who are heartburn, sleeping just after meal can cause the acid in the stomach to leak out into the esophagus, or "food pipe," causing reflux. Sitting upright helps us digest because due to gravity food lays at the bottom of the stomach which is beneficial and helps in digesting.
One should wait at least 3 hours after meals and then should hit the bed, because the stomach empties itself around in three hours.
Apart from lying down just after meal can cause reflux, it is also created by Late Eating habit. Although it is a common condition, but in the long  run it can cause many diseases like heartburn, Indigestion, Coughing, Hoarseness, and also asthma. In worst cases it can lead to cancer as well.
Late eaters tend to stuff a lot because psychologically the hunger is felt much more than it actually is. Thus more stuff means more indigestion and other problems. Since your brain takes about 20 minutes to register a full stomach, you could eat too much before you know you're satiated. If this is happening more than one or two nights a week, it could be causing you to gain weight.
Hence to conclude I would say never eat late nor stuff more than the amount which is digestive.
