Curb Your Cravings in a Healthy Manner
No matter how much we try to prevent it, sometimes the feeling is overwhelming – Late night snacking.
When we can’t curb these cravings, it’s all too often we turn to all of the unhealthy or even just carb-heavy snacks.
If you are like me – and I LOVE to snack – I have to make it a habit to keep around some good, low carb, high protein snacks to grab and curl up on the couch with. Remember that lat night snacking as a direct impact on your body’s metabolism. Eating sugary or high-carb foods right before you put your body into a resting state is a recipe for weight gain. You can feed the hunger urge while still maintaining a healthy balance. Your body will thank you.
The GOOD Late Night Snacking
- Cottage cheese
- Eggs (boiled, scrambled, who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner, or a late-night snack?)
- String cheese
- Protein meat snacks (my favorite are the Ostrim brand)
- Chickpea salad
- Hummus and veggies
- Chicken salad
The BAD Late Night Snacking
- Fruits, as they are high in sugar and therefore loaded with carbs
- Sweets! This might be the hardest one to avoid
