    emoticon Dangers of Nighttime Snacking

    The best way to curb your nighttime eating habits for good is to use short term strategies. These will help you to break the habit.

    If you can replace the snacking with a healthier habit, then maybe you won't feel the need to eat mindlessly in the evening or while watching T.V. Use one of these tips (or all three) to change your night time snacking.

    Try to move away from the food. You're more likely to eat too much at night if you are always around food. So after dinner, put off cleaning the kitchen. This might mean that if you postpone the clean-up for just a little while, or at least until you aren't tempted to eat the leftovers. Or better yet, try delegating the job to someone in your house who isn't on a diet or at least get help with the cleaning the plate.

    Another great way to get away from food is to go for a walk after dinner. This will give your brain time to catch up with your stomach and receive the signal of feeling full. Even if your walk is just 15-20 minutes long.

    Using a "meal-ender" is often a way to curb our appetites. Some of us like to use mint-flavored gum to diminish the desire to eat after dinner or to simply go brush our teeth and floss-along with a dental health bonus. Most of us don't like the taste of food when we have a mint flavor in our mouths. .

    You can also try using MealEnders. These small candies claim to "reset" your taste buds so that you won't feel the urge to eat. MealEnders contain no stimulants and are regulated as a food product so they have to follow strict guidelines of the Food and Drug Administration, unlike many diet and weight loss supplements.

    Be a smart television watcher. Most of us eat at night when we are in front of the television. We will just sit there and snack mindlessly on unhealthy snacks. This is where you need to take action and plan for healthy snacks and/or distractions. Some researchers believe that certain action shows make us eat too much food. Regardless of your show preference, however, you can create healthy eating habits in front of the television to eat less and lose weight.

    My favorite way to eat less is to keep my hands active. I fold laundry or do other simple chores while I watch TV. If I really want to eat - and I know I've eaten enough for dinner - then I will use specific strategies to control snacking in front of the tv. I also make sure that I follow good portion control guidelines if I choose to snack while watching TV.

    Remember, snacking isn't necessarily bad for your diet. But eating when you're not hungry is never a good idea. Learn to eat a healthy at appropriate times and then create habits to stop snacking so much at night. You'll reach your goal weight faster and you will keep your weight off for good.
