This is my biggest down fall,
I have tried to close the kitchen down completely. Didn't work for me.
I then traded mindless snacking, for fruit. An orange, grapefruit, grapes, or strawberries.
I usually have supper around 5pm and I usually get a little hungry for a snack a couple hours latter. The calories from the snack are included in my meal plan.

I like your idea of keep your hands busy, I have been wanting to learn to quilt, so now may be the time to start on that..Thanks

Cheryl Ky.

In Christ alone my hope is found

I always have a night time snack. I plan it into my points allowance. I have a diet hot cocoa and a snack - sometimes a yogurt, sometimes a vita top and peanut butter, a piece of fruit, half a bagel or an English muffin with peanut butter....

To keep from mindless munching, I keep my hands busy with a crossword, a book, sudoku, or an embroidery project.

Eat late - gain weight?

emoticon Do you find evenings and night time more challenging than day time?

We work hard all day, either at the office or at home. We finally sit down and relax in the evening, and either we're hungry or not, we DESERVE some comfort and reward after a busy hard day (that's what the "evil" part of us may say...).
And what's more comfort than FOOD?

emoticon There are TWO parts here:
1. How to learn to rest and relax in the evening without turning to comfort foods?
2. What is the best time to stop eating in the evening?

emoticon Do you find you have less control at night time?

emoticon What does the "good" part of you say to avoid the wrong snacks at night time?

emoticon Do you eat after dinner or kitchen is closed?

emoticon How do you solve the problem of wanting to eat too much and too late?


There are different opinions about night time eating. Does it really make us gain weight? or not?

Here is a good article on the subject.
