I was actually just googling this topic last night when I was starving and my boyfriend had just heated up a piece of lasagna that smelled so good and it made my stomach feel empty. I ended up eating a half a cup of granola. It has a sweetness to it that really gets rid of my craving for my late night sweets. If you go ahead and google healthy late night snacks all of the sites give you a list of ideas of things to have.

Eating before bed doesn't necessarily lead to weight gain. If you end up taking in more calories that you burned that day, you will gain weight - no matter what time you ate your meals/snacks. It's really only a problem if you end up overflowing on your calorie limit for that day, i.e., taking in more calories than you've burned. With that being said, if you've already had your alloted calories for the day and tend to take in extra calories at night - a good tip = brush your teeth right after dinner, or whenever your calories are "used up" for the day. Works for me! :)

The sky is the limit...

I'm with you, girl. I struggle with late night snacking as well. This isn't a great solution, but sometimes I just try to eat dinner later so that I'm not so hungry later. Then I'm just fighting the habit, not actual hunger. :)

Night time snacking isn't always a bad thing. If you have dinner at 6 or so, depending on how late you go to bed, you will get hungry. It's okay to eat as long as you snack on something healthy, like a banana or a cup of berries. PLAN on eating a small healthy snack 2 hours before you go to sleep. That, along with a little will power should keep you out of the snack drawer for the rest of the night :)

Since starting the Spark program I've been doing very well at managing my calorie intake and meeting my workout goals, however there is one goal I have that I can't seem to get a handle on. Night-time snacking. All my life (as long as I can remember) I have always eaten a snack right before bed, after learning this was an unhealthy habit, not to mention horrible for my metabolism, I tried to stop. I noticed then that if I don't have a snack before bed I just lay there and get so hungry I can't sleep until I eventually give in and eat something. (It's important to know that even when I snack at night I still stay well within my allotted calorie intake.) If anyone is, or has struggled with this in the past I would love to hear any tips and tricks that might help me in kicking this habit. :) Thanks for reading!
