I've learned that I feel deprived if I don't have a night time snack. I've tried to do without and end up eating more in the long run. Now I'll have of greek yogurt mixed with 2tbsp of my chocolate protein powder for a 'pudding'. All the protein fills me up and I get a chocolate fix!

I tend to throw in the towel and quit every time i cheated so i decided to allow myself a TREAT everyday. My secret: I limit this treat to 100 calories. There are lots of pre-packed snacks on the market that are only 100 calories but as time goes by i will package my own. it works!!!
if i feel like chocolate i count out the chocolate chips or buy a mini chocolate bar. if i feel like a salty snack - a bag of Thinsations Bits & Bites. If I feel like a crunch then i count out my chips. ONLY 100 CALORIES ! that's the key my other snacks are healthy...fruit, veggies etc.
