I would agree with a lot of people. Eater about 300 calories at night helps. Also having nuts as a snack helps. I myself have been eating low fat yogurt with fruit cut up and mixed in it. That helps me a lot. Sometimes I'll do a tall glass of orange juice and I like to add the orange flavor Metamucil as well.
For me, baby carrots never satisfy my cravings at night or I would do it more :(
I also have made a salad as a snack too which has helped when I was really hungry.

Hi everyone,

Eating at night is one of the biggest problem that I'am dealing with for my diet.
Usually when I came back home tired, I craved for sugary food ( coca cola ) or diary food ( hot chocolate).
Although, I know that vegetables will be best at this time, I just sit and ate and regret much I ate, the minute I finished.
I have a lot of work to do with my mind.

I have a weird schedule; I go to bed at 4:00am and wake up at noon. So, I eat breakfast around 1:00pm; lunch around 5:00pm and dinner around 10:15. I snack all day, though.

I also read the articles that say it doesn't matter when you eat but what and how much you eat. It hasn't seemed to affect my weight loss.

When I had a normal schedule and ate late (and usually went over), I just counted those calories towards the next day. That system worked too because, although I weigh everyday, I only record my weight once a week

Hi How long have you been doing this? Do you get use to no food before bed after awhile then? Do you ever get the urge to eat and just make your mind up that you are not going to eat?

Late Night Snacking
September 29, 2004
Many people think eating late at night causes weight gain. Actually, itís not when you eat that matters, itís what and how much you eat.
Fueling the body is a matter of timing. The longer you wait between meals, the more you tend to eat at the next meal. Three to four hours between meals is about the right amount of time to keep blood sugar levels in control.
Plan snacks with small portions in mind. Crackers and low fat cheese, yogurt and fruit, cereal and milk or peanut butter and apple slices are good options. Eating snacks with both carbohydrate and protein helps the body stay fueled.
If weight loss is your goal, space meals and snacks three to four hours apart, no matter what time of day, and watch portion sizes.

I know that if I must nibble it should be something healthy and low cal like fruit, carrots or popcorn. I need to work on that. Thanks for your input!

Before I started SP, my worst time for eating was around 10:00 pm - I could pack away hundreds of calories at that time.

I am a nighthawk and don't go to bed before 1:00 a.m, so I have supper around
7:00 pm. If I get hungry later on, I'll have some baby carrots and grapes - and if I'm really hungry, I'll have a small
serving (around 12) of almonds. I find almonds are great at warding off hunger.

I have to admit, at the beginning I was going to bed with a rumbly stomach, however this has gotten much better!

Good luck to you!

Hi There I read your post on night time eating I have the same problem. This is whta i try to do i will save calories for my night time eating i have done alot of research & it realy doesnt matter when you get your calories in as long as the are within your range so i save maybe 300 calories for my eating at night that way i at least dont go over.
I have also eaten very low cal things or things that are healthy (fruit,or 100 cal items) hope this was of some help.

My problem is eating after 7 pm. I'm usually not even hungry! Since I've been drinking water it's not as bad but I'm still doing it. Sometimes I will actually argue with myself (do I or don't I scenario) & I'll still eat! Any tips out there?
