Hi MM - since you know this is a time you crave something, have you added an extra "meal" to your tracker? Call it "late night snack" and try to keep it under 100-150 calories. Plan for it through the day.

I like sweet too, but fruit will usually satisfy that for me. One of my current favorites is a greek vanilla yogurt (Dannon Light and Fit is only 80 cals and fills that sweet craving!) with pomegranite seeds. Or try an apple sliced with a tbs of natural peanut butter.

“I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘no’ for too many days in a row, I k now I need to change something.” ~ Steve Jobs

I'm late with my response and hope you were able to stay out of the kitchen. Something that has helped me, once I've recieved my calorie goals for the day - I brush my teeth for about four minutes. It seems to be a good signal to my brain that we are finished for the day. The other thing that helps in finding a quiet spot and spending about two minutes breathing deeply. All the best to you!

Don't go into the kitchen and mindlessly eat right now! I share you desire to eat healthy tonight. Have you worked out today? I find that if I do some yoga or a little workout it will help clear my mind. Have you tried any of Coach Nicole's videos on the healthy lifestyle tab? There are a lot there that are 10 minutes or under.

I have an issue with eating late at night - it began ever since the middle of my first semester in college this year. I just made myself some hot green tea, but I really want food. And by "food", I mean something sugary, like a cupcake. I know I'll feel guilty after I eat it. I guess I just need someone to tell me to not go into the kitchen and mindlessly eat right now.
