What has helped me these last few days is to have set aside 100-150 calories for my snack, which I take to bed to eat while I read and before I turn the light out. This week I've been eating a bag of 100 cal popcorn and a clemintime. Although I still get up, that snack seems to prevent me from heading to the kitchen for more. It's only been a few days, so I hope it continues to work.

A couple things I have found helps me to control my late night snacking is to make sure I eat regular, healthy meals and snacks throughout the day and that I eat all my calories. I find if I don't, my drive to eat at night is uncontrollable.
If I do reach for a late night snack, I try to make sure it is healthy but relatively low impact. I love frozen strawberries. Good luck!

hope i'm in the right place. i have been with spark for a few months now and some bumps in the road threw me off track. it seems when i do get back on track i sabotage myself with my late night snacking. i've even fallen asleep watching tv but will wake back up just to eat before i go back to bed. guess it's even a bit of a binge too. not just one small snack but several b/c i just can't decide what i want to eat. it's crazy b/c i don't know what is causing me to behave this way. i've recently cleared my home of any bad foods but it seems when i want to eat/snack..it doesn't matter what is in the house. setting a new goal to no longer eat after 7pm...ganna see how long i can make the streak last...wish me luck!
