Eating at night can add up to extra weight quickly. Cravings kick in, we’re stressed at the end of the day and before we know it, we are raiding the fridge again, even after eating a large meal.
Tips to end nighttime eating and binges
Eat breakfast daily. Balancing your blood sugar throughout the day is key to stopping nighttime snacking. Always eat a breakfast meal that contains a good source of protein, such as eggs.
Stop the liquid calories. They’re full of sugar and will spike your blood sugar and insulin, leading to cravings.
Don’t skip meals. Ensure you have breakfast, lunch and dinner every day, with a snack between meals if you like. Develop a regular routine for meals—regulating your hormones through proper eating will keep it in balance.
Include protein and good quality fat at each meal. These include nuts and seeds, avocados, coconut, olive oil, chicken, fish and meat. Combine these with lots of vegetables to control blood sugar.
