Do you eat well during the day and then ruin your healthy eating at night? If you answered yes, you are not alone!
Nighttime eating can cause you to eat more calories than you need to and can lead to weight gain.
Here are some tips to help you fight off that night time hunger:
1. Identify the why is this happening
You may be hungrier at night because you are overly restricting your diet during the day
Maybe you're stressed or anxious
Or maybe you are just bored
Finding out the cause will help you solve this problem
2. Get into a routine
Structured eating and sleeping times will help you spread your food intake over the day so that you're less hungry at night.
3. De- Stress
Anxiety and stress are two of the most common reasons why people eat when they aren't hungry.
Instead of looking for food to deal with stress try exercising or meditation
4. Eat protein at every meal
Protein help keeps you full longer and will help you reduce your cravings and nighttime eating
5. Don’t keep any type of junk food in your house
If unhealthy items aren't in your reach then you are less likely to snack on them at night
