Night-Time Snacking… Just Can’t Stop?!


Q:

My most difficult time is late evenings. How can I resist the temptation to snack at this time of day?

A:

I understand that you may want to “graze” at night, but part of a diet is changing your lifestyle. It takes will power and a lot of work to change your habits. If you do graze all night, you will definitely consume too many calories, and you will not be sticking to your diet. Knowing that about yourself, you could probably adjust your meals a little. For an example, eat less in the morning and at lunch and then have a larger dinner and save your snacks for later in the day. It doesn’t matter how you break up your calories. As long as you stay within your limits, you will be okay. Ideally, you should try to limit eating very late as it is best to spread out your calories throughout the day. This can seem daunting if you haven’t done it before, but try to start with small changes. No one can expect to completely change their habits overnight. Maybe you’ll be a little over in your first few days. Use a nutrition tracker or calorie counter and learn about your habits to see where you can improve.
