Night time munchies

Friday, January 08, 2010

Even in just a few days of tracking my food I've found that I eat almost half of my calories after work. I'm sure part of this is due to having more access to food because I'm at home and am not restricted to the snacks I bring with me to work. Its like I'm not satisfied with eating dinner. I snack when I get home from work, eat dinner and snack again after dinner. Does anyone have any good suggestions on how to curb my appetite in the evenings. Or tricks that have worked to keep from runnig to the kitchen every time I want something to eat.

I've been doing great at work. A lot of this is due mostly to the preperation I do the night before. Each night I gather my lunch and snacks for the next day together and then each morning I just throw them all in my bag before heading out the door. It definitley helps me to have healthy snacks with me at work so I never reach the point of feeling like I'm "starving". I would recommend this strategy to anyone who has the ability to take snacks with them to work or school.

    You might want to reduce to fat and calories you eat at dinner as to allow you to snack or make larger portions of healthy food for dinner. Fish for example is very healthy poached see recipes on sparkpeople page. Or have healthy and tasty snacks ready. Sparkpeople have these suggestions http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource

    I have the munchies after work and before dinner and tended to eat anything I found including straight from the container Cool Whip. Well I bought peanuts in the shell so it take time for me to open them and baby carrots and made some changes on dinner content to accomodate the extra calories.

    Good luck and keep focusing on your goal, a healthier you.
