Bust Late Night Cravings


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

My usual craving times are at night. I have found that if I drink water instead of right away grabbing a snack, my cravings often go away. I "forget" to drink much throughout the day meaning my body is dehydrated and really not hungry after all. emoticon

Reach for a glass of water before reaching for a for me!

    I also floss, brush my teeth and then gargle with mouth wash. 1) it gives you that nice minty flavor that I really enjoy and 2) who wants to go through that whole process again? It REALLY helps me to control my eating at night.

    That is one of the hardest things for me is just snacking late at night. Most times I am not hungry, I want it because it's there. I will definitely take heed to this.

    Great reminder. I keep some lemon slices in a container in the refrigerator and sometimes add one to the water for sipping, but guzzling is much more filling for me.

    Good idea. I often use water to kill those bedtime cravings.
