Secrets of Success

Avoiding The Bedtime Snack



I find that if I go to bed just a tiny bit hungry the scale will drop in the morning. I don't mean, stomach growling starving, but just the feeling that I could eat a little more. I also sleep better if I am not over full.

  • I definitely feel better when I go to bed at least an hour or two after I've eaten. emoticon - by JANIEWWJD
  • A small snack stablizes blood sugar and will make you less hungry in the AM. Reach for celery with a small amount of cream cheese or peanut butter or Nestle's Fat Free Hot Cocoa Mix which is about 25 calories. Just takes the edge off. - by SUNSHINE6442
  • Excellent advice. If I find myself reaching for the bedtime snack is it really about being hungry or just a habit. Mindfulness is the key. - by LORID126
    I, too, agree with this statement! I have always thought it was because I was able to burn more calories in my sleep because i was hungryish. - by CASSIEBEAR2010
  • I go to bed a little hungry too sometimes. I can't sleep if I am too full!! - by ANGELBEAR94
    This happens to me too. I wonder why that is? - by VAPERCHICK
  • I feel better and sleep better too. The other day I went about 100 calories over the highest in my calorie range and had been eating later in the evening. I woke up in the middle of the night feeling queazy; maybe it was a coincidence?
