Snack before bed is helping to stop night time bingeing
Sunday, July 30, 2017
Go to bed at 10:00 PM.
Wake up at 11:30 or so completely ravenous (possibly leading to a binge unless I exert supreme self-control, which is hard when I'm so tired and so ravenous).
For the past 2 weeks I have been eating a snack between 8-9PM and have not been hungry when I wake at 11:30 or so!
What I eat: 2 Organic Mozzarella Cheese Sticks, for a total of 160 calories, (12g of fat, 16g protein and 2g carb). They are included in my food plan for the day.
I can't believe I haven't figured this out in all the years I've been struggling with this.This used to be a 1,000 calorie binge per night struggle, which completely un-did all the work I had done during the day to lose weight.
Invitation to myself (and to you, too): If something isn't working for you, don't just believe all the standard advice. Try different things until you work it out for your specific body.
All the best to you on this challenging path!
