The end of night-time snacking

Sunday, February 03, 2019

One of my worst habits has been to snack in the evening, so I've been working on this over the past week. I decided that it will be a hard and fast rule that I will not eat anything from the time dinner is over until breakfast the next day. I used to make all kinds of excuses, grabbing "just a few" hard candies, or anything small that seemed harmless. But a little bit of something never satisfied, so I would soon be back for "just a few" more.
It seems easier for me to follow a set-in-stone rule than to be flexible in this, so I have made no exceptions. So far, so good!

    Thanks for the tips. I do this sometimes, and also try chewing gum just to keep my mouth busy so I don't eat!

    I know exactly what you mean. Evening munchies is my biggest problem. We usually eat dinner about 4:30 at our house. That's way too early for me. I get hungry again before I go to bed. One thing that helps me is eating later. I go ahead and make dinner for the others, but I don't eat until 6:00. That's helpful because I don't get hungry again before bed time. Brushing your teeth was suggested in the previous comment. I'm surprised at how well this really works. When I brush my teeth after dinner it's easier not to eat anything else because I don't want to brush my teeth again before I go to bed.

    any time you want to break this rule... go brush your teeth instead... that fresh clean sweet taste in your mouth will give you that same feeling as having a small piece of candy and who wants to eat after brushing teeth... no one
