Why not meter out your fruit and milk products better we have 4 fruits daily and half a liter milk products. Use half during the day and PLAN for a healthy snack with carbs in them to desert..

Sparks says if we eat within the ratios of carbs fat and protein- doesn't matter when we eat them- just get them in..

I agree with CAH-RD. In fact I have trouble getting up to my carb range everyday, and I'm eating fruits, vegatable, whole wheat, etc. So unless you are going over your carb range, I wouldn't be that specific. I would say that my late night snacks are probably more carb than other things I eat, and my weight losses always occur overnight (of course). Carbs are actually needed to release and burn stored fat ... one reason the low carb diets don't make much sense.

cocoa and a little sweetner stirred into cottage cheese makes a delicious "pudding"

or if you want savoury, hard boiled eggs are easy to keep on hand.

I wouldn't recommend no/low-carb personally, but low carb foods include proteins such as meat, cheese, eggs, nuts, cottage cheese, etc as well as most veggies.

I made a really yummy snack, that is easy to put together. I don't know if you mean low carb/no fruit...but if not, I used low fat cottage cheese, a cut up peach, almond slices and some splenda... it was really great. Another great one is apple or celery with almond butter.

Hey! So I eat plenty of fruits, oats, and kashi cereals etc, but I've tried to lower my carb intake a tad and was trying to not eat much after my supper. Any late night snacks that are low in carbs??
