Break the Late Night Munchies

Eating late night snacks is a bad habit for many people. It’s exactly what I said a habit. Motivational and self help experts like Tony Robbins and Zig Ziglar have said it takes 21 days to break a bad habit.

Chances are, you satisfied your hunger at dinner, so these late-night munchies are not about being hungry. It’s a habit developed from , boredom, stress, or fatigue. No matter what the cause, eating at night usually leads to overeating . If you eat more calories at times of day when you’re not active, you’re likely to gain weight.

Favorite food munchies:

Ice cream, potato chips, cookies, candy, donuts and latte’s with a lot of sugar.

Sweet solution:

* Resolve not to eat late in the day or after dinner.
* Distract yourself — curl up to a good book
* Eat  a handful of veggies
* Increase the fiber in your diet-  Try eating beans to keep you feeling full.
* Increase the protein in your dinner

* Always eat in the kitchen or dining room, this helps curb “eating amnesia,” that mindless munching in the bed
* Eat slowly and savor the taste of your food. Give yourself 15 to 20 minutes for your brain to get the signal that you have had enough.
* Eat breakfast every morning
*Drink plenty of water. Not only will it help you stay hydrated, it will give you something to do with your hands and mouth. Try not to drink after 6pm unless you want to sit by the potty all night. untitled-4428-1
