Late Night Eating

I know there are healthy ways to eat late at night, but should I try to avoid it at all costs anyhow? It seems for me, once I start, even if it IS a healthy late night snack, I'm constantly wanting just a BIT more. This craving usually gets controlled in the mornings and afternoons, but when the sun sets, I never want to stop.

Any advice?

A good breakfast - like 300 calories - within an hour of waking up is the best solution to late eating/bingeing. Every time I try to get away with a breakfast half that size, the day ends badly.

You're singing my song! The question is not should you eat, but WHY do you eat? I accumulate about 95% of my unnecessary calories at night. I'm not hungry, I just want to EAT. And like you, I'll start off with a little something and next thing you know I've eaten 400 calories. If you're not hungry then your best bet is to avoid it. Figure out the WHY and do something else.

I finish my last meal between 7-8 PM. It contains enough protein that I won't be hungry by the time I get to bed. I've also conditioned myself to go to bed at
10 PM - 11 PM so I become very sleepy around those times. I head right for bed and stay there until morning.

Basically, go to sleep!

Have a cup of tea, or a piece of fruit and stop it at that. It is difficult to do, but you will feel so much better about yourself the next day. If it is watching TV at night that spurs you to eat, turn the TV off and go for a walk, call a friend, or read a book. We are so conditioned to our habits that they are hard to break, but it can be done!

I eat later at night because of my schedule, my nutritionist reccomends eating a protein late at night rather than a carb. I eat yogurt, cottage cheese, eggs (egg whites). It usually works for me. If I want some kind of carb I go for a peanut beutter and jelly-or some popcorn -plain, homeade on the stove. I try to keep it light, but it is a myth that eating late at night causes weight gain, I've lost 25 pounds with eating at night the whole time. Drinking liquids at night really helps me keep from snacking--and not watching tv.
