You snack at night because you are hungry. Stretch you meals out more. We tend to eat from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., and then starve ourselves for 12 hours. Amazingly we get hungry.

Eat 50 less calories at each meal, and have a 150-200 calorie snack an hour or so before bed. I often eat my last meal around midnight. Breakfast at 8 a.m.

I WAS the queen of night-eating.
If you look at my prof. you'l see I lost 14lbs over a year. I worked out a lot, but always 'ate'.
I can just say, that you need to train yourself. Sorry, no easy way here.

I fall off the bandwagon, and cry over spilt milk, and then get right back up.
If you have the will, you'l manage. Promise!

Add some healthy fats to your evening meal...such as 5 black olives, a vinegar and olive oil salad, Slices of Avocado.

Also, if hungry reach for egg whites.... Always keep "All Whites" egg whites on hand...you can have a full cup scrambled with some green peppers and diced onions for less than 125 calories. I like these better than any other kind of egg whites because they are fluffier and the taste is better...

Grab some air-popped popcorn...3 cups, around 100 calories. Popcorn is one of the healthiest foods anyone can eat....no butter or margarine, no salt..sprinkle with parm or romano which has protein or cinnamon to flavor...It's low calorie, low fat, and high in fiber. Great snack that promotes lower cholesterol levels.

Have a hard boiled egg...Eggs Are Loaded with Nutrients & lots of vitamins..74 calories


1/2 cup Cottage Cheese and a handful of Matchstick carrots, flaxseeds around 75 calories

Pear and 1 ounce of light Brie about 120 Calories
String Cheese 80 calories
sugar-free ice pops ...low in calories...low impact on blood sugar...

Just some ideas to stay within your calorie range

I had the same problem, so what I did when I re-started tracking was I allowed calories for a night-time snack if I knew I would be up late. Something like veggies and hummus, an apple with pb, etc. Easy and healthy!

I have a problem with this as well and it makes me think about one of my WW leaders once said. She began tracking her meals at dinner, so that would be like breakfast on here and you go from there because it gives you the idea of what you can eat the next day to meet your goals when you aren't as hungry. I hope that I explained that clearly enough, for me I often start my tracking at 6:00 pm until the next day at the same time, just something to think about.

Usually one of two things: Inadequate nutrition over the course of the day, or just plain boredom!

I can control my eating during the day, but something happens in the evening, after dinner. What is the cause of night hunger that can destroy a good, healthy day of eating? emoticon
