Secrets of Success

Do *not* Watch Food Network At Night!




It just makes me want to cook & eat everything they are making, or at LEAST snack along with them (& night-time snacking is a BIG no-no for my weight loss program!).

If you *must* watch something food-related on late night TV, stick with something gross like reruns of Andrew Zimmern's "Bizarre Foods"... Watching him munch on bugs & rotten fruit supports my weight loss goals by acting as a very effective (and SAFE!) appetite suppressant!

  • Oh my gosh...if I watch TV it usually is the food network...and then I'm craving EVERYTHING!!! I've started to not watch TV at all after supper!
    Thanks for posting this! - by LISAKRISTY
    I so agree with this tip!!! We don't even have to be hungry to see food on TV and decide it's time for a snack. Luckily, we use the DVR to zip through commercials while watching other channels; but, DEFINITELY NO FOOD NETWORK after dinner!!!!!! What makes my challenge a little more difficult is that my husband is muscular but thin with a killer metabolism .... so he can eat constantly and not gain an ounce. Usually, sometime between 8-9pm, he's like a scavenger in the pantry, LOL! That's when I find it convenient to bathe, paint my nails, brush my teeth, quick sewing repairs .... anything to stay out of the kitchen/living room area for about an hour!!!!! - by PICKANYNAME
  • Watching "The Biggest Loser" curbs my night time snacking, while the ads for fast food hamburgers can make my mouth water. The funny part is that I don't really like fast food at all but they make it look so appealing. - by JUMPINJACKFLASH
  • I think just like you but sometimes someone needs to remind me - by BRADIA
