night snacking

You can curb late-night munching. If your biggest weakness is nighttime snacking, having a bowl of breakfast cereal for dessert might actually help you prevent it. A recent study in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition found that self-described late-night nibblers who ate a serving of ready-to-eat cereal with low-fat milk 90 minutes after dinner consumed about 400 fewer calories each day. The researchers believe that as a more "structured snack," cereal prevented participants' usual high-caloriebinges. F.

note: Stay away from liquid calorie drinks (they don't register in your head), they are calorie dense.

When you have nothing left but love, then for the first time you become aware that love is enough.

That's a great tip! I sure agonize over my late-night food choices and many times just say 'Forget it' and go with anything I find, just to regret it later. I'll try the cereal idea, it seems pretty good. Thanks,

I have oatmeal as a light night snack. I do plan late night snacks but that's a good tip.

I've been struggling with late night eating lately because I've been up so late working. I find that because I'm not sleeping enough that my body craves more fuel, but because I'm sitting working at a computer, I'm not burning anything so it all goes to the waist, sigh.

:O That's crazy.

You know what I do, I always have a HUGE bowl of cereal as my late night snack, like I'll stay away from the sugary bad cereals all day, but at 11pm I just can't and I'll have a huge bowl.

I wonder if I eat some healthy yummy cereal 90mins after dinner, would that stop me from that bad late night snacking.

I'm going to try and I'll let ya know.

Really interesting blog about omega 3 fish oil pill. In a similar vain to omega 3 fish oil pill, I've found the richest, purest omega-3 EFP fish oil supplement on the market. My health has improved dramatically - both physical and mental. I've been taking MorEPA now for about 6 months and I cannot emphasize how much this supplement have helped me to cope with anxiety and depression. The supplements can be ordered from **wwwomega3.com**. I'd also recommend daily exercise.
