When I get the urge to grab something to snack on, I remember a saying I learned through Positive Changes: "Appetite (craving) is of the mind; hunger is of the body." In other words, if my stomach isn't growling or empty, then my urges stem for a mental or emotional desire. That has been very helpful for me.
Positive Changes is an "hypnosis" program. I participated in the Beaverton, Oregon center.
Oprah said once on her show that she doesn't eat past a certain time of day and instead has a cup of herbal tea before retiring to bed. This is not only a good way to curb your appetite before bed, but helps you sleep soundly too! 102
I like Lipton's Bedtime Story or Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime.
