Late night snacking is a huge concern for many of the people I work with in our private groups.
We are so busy during our day; skipping meals, by the time 8pm hits, we feel ravenous.
Here are some SIMPLE ideas to stop the cycle & reach your goals!
CleanFoodCrush Tips to Avoid Night-time Snacking:
Good HABITS and the right foods during the day will solve late night snacking:
- Plan ahead! Take a few minutes each night preparing your favorite healthy foods for the next day
- Eat 5-6 smaller meals throughout the day
- Eat a green vegetable with every meal
- Increase daily protein intake (some say your weight in grams of protein, especially if working out daily)
- PLAN for nighttime eating. Break up or space your meals so that you have one at that time of night
- Make sure to have post-workout protein shake or high protein meal within an hour after working out; helps with cravings later in the day and night
- Eat most of your carbs earlier in the day
- Eat more GOOD fats throughout the day
- Eating Clean (no processed, all whole foods) helps reduce cravings at night
If you want to flat-out avoid late-night eating late at night, then:
- Stay away from refined sugar, especially at night (increases your cravings!)
- Close the kitchen! Clean, light-off, STAY OUT
- Brush your teeth
- Drink a big glass of water
- Drink green and/or herbal teas with a squeeze of fresh lemon
- Go to bed: read, listen to something, whatever is relaxing but stay in bed
- Sit in the bathtub
- Go for a walk
- Take a probiotic at bedtime
- Try on & pick out an outfit for the next day
- Call a friend, call your Mom
- Chew gum
- Keep your hands busy: crocheting, knitting, writing, etc.
- Check the emotions: boredom, “reward” feeling after getting kids to bed, anxiety about work left to do, etc. Identify the emotion behind the urge to snack at night, sit with it a minute, then drink a big glass of water or tea instead!
If you must eat something before bed, then:
- Scrambled egg whites with sugar free salsa
- Protein shake: water or almond milk plus one scoop protein powder, stevia, cinnamon, Barlean’s key lime fish oil. ( I use Jay Robb’s Protein Powder. It doesn’t contain any sugar.)
- Veggies like celery sticks, carrots, broccoli etc. Add 1-2 tbsp hummus, salsa, etc.
- 1/2 cup unsweetened Greek yogurt with a tbsp of natural nut butter, a scoop of chocolate or vanilla protein powder, a tbsp of chia seeds, frozen berries, vanilla, OR a drop of stevia (watch the adding up of calories here, can easily become high-calorie).
- 1 cup homemade Air-popped non-gmo popcorn with a sprinkle of sea salt
- Casein slow release shake
- 1-2 tbsp. sugar-free nut butter
- Roasted chickpeas.
- A small handful of raw nuts such as almonds
Fit one or two of these ideas into your day, make it a habit, and watch what happens!
