I plan for before bed snacks. Two of my favorites are Greek yogurt on top of a multigrain waffle, and 1 tbsp peanut butter on a slice of toast topped with 1/2 a banana.

I was told that there are several things you can have for dinner that can make you feel hungry even after eating. For instance: White bread, diet pop, anything with artificial sugars. I switched to wheat bread and only allow myself i can of diet a day. It has helped and I do feel fuller longer. I was also told a spoon of peanut butter is great after a workout and as a night snack bc of the protein and it is suppose to help raise your metabolism to burn extra calories while you sleep.

Always leave calorie room for 2 snacks in the evening, I usually have one fruit, like tonight, I have grapefruit segments from the jar, you can buy separate little servings now, too. Light laughing cow cheese, I allow 2 triangles. Skinny Cow frozen fudge bar on a stick, or Healthy Choice frozen fudge bar on a stick. There are no sugar added ice cream sandwiches, 100 cal. each or some other kind of ice cream or frozen product. Or a small serving of cereal with f/f milk. s/f suisse mocha hot beverage is good. Nature Valley granola thins, with dark chocolate, one is 80 calories and not bad at all. Up to you to decide which 2 snacks you enjoy.
I've had some trouble with snacking at night lately. I can follow my plan for the day to the T until about 8:30. I end up over my calories because I have a hard time finding something satisfying. Ideas?
