Dee, that's a great idea! My biggest problem is when I start I can't stop, samething, sweets at night. Yesterday right after dinner I did 3 small peppermint patties and it seemed to stave off the rest of the cravings. I have heard that before, the mint taste be it in low calorie candy, toothpaste or mouthwash will ward off cravings. Hope you're feeling better. I love Twinkies by the way :) Val

Yesterday I thought I was feeling under the weather so I ate a twinkie for dinner. I know I'm a nightsnacker but I try to keep sugar free gum or Red Vines or Swedish Fish cause its normally sweets I crave. I use to be out of control but I am doing a little better. Its still a challenge though. . .God bless & welcome to the team!

If hunger is not the problem, then eating is not the solution.

Another good reducing exercise consists in placing both hands against the table edge and pushing back.

Welcome to the team! I'm a HUGE night snacker. I love my cookies. I use the same techniques that helped me quit smoking. I stay busy. I go to bed really early because I'm up early. So if I can stay busy right after dinner it keeps my mind off my cookies. By the time I sit down I have about 30 minutes until I hit the hay. Lately I have been having a nice cup of hot tea. Try something fruit flavored. It seems to work for me. Good luck!

There are 2 things that have helped me with night snacking. #1. If I just have to eat something and I know it's not thirst (I try drinking water and waiting at least 10-15 minutes) my snack is a yogurt with a banana or a yogurt with a handfull of walnuts. This satisfies my hunger, keeps me full and is healthy. Or #2 I eat my dinner a little bit more late than normal and go to bed earlier. This usually works. However, try to identify if your snacking is habitual or if your really feeling hunger. I've noticed, for me, that when I get into the night snacking habit it's usually because I haven't been eating much throughout the day and so at night I get hungry. So I get back on track by going to bed early even when I'm hungry which makes me wake up the next morning with a huge appetite and this usually gets my day back on track. Hope this helps.
