I try and find things to curb late night snacking and I recently was under the weather and was eating ice chips. Believe it or not..they seem to work w/ 'mindless' night snacking.it's time consuming to chew on them and helps with 'boredom' snacking. I even bought (at the dollar store) popsicle makers..i just fill em with cranberry juice (or other healthy stuff), freeze em and they're good for late nights too!
Have a craving? Don't want to blow your calorie count for the day with boredom snacking? Set a timer on your phone. Set it for 15-20 minutes. Do something else in the mean time. When it goes off if you are STILL hungry or having that craving, chances are you really are hungry. Have a snack. Maybe an apple. Or a low cal snack. Maybe a little bit of what you are craving.
