I get the late night munchies. If I cave, I now choose frozen fruit instead of ice cream. A nice crisp /dehydrated Apples or Pear instead of chips... and keep carrots and other veggies when i want that salty "binge" with no more than 2 TBsp of Dressing... I get more fruits and veggies this way.. and it has really caused me to think about my munching choices. (IF YOU ARE DIABETIC this is something you would need to deal with sugar levels before trying)

I make sure that I do not eat after 8pm. I would rather go to bed hungry and feel good in the morning than wake up in the morning with my blood sugar levels out of control and a grumbling stomach. If I feel a craving coming on I crunch on some ice cubes...it works for me! 20
After you have determined that you are indeed hungry, MAKE SURE you have acceptable choices on hand - healthy nuts or seeds, fruits, veggies, hard pretzels, butter-less popcorn, etc. Then you will not be tempted to consume high calories fat-laden snacks!
