Be honest about why you have the urge
(HealthDay News) -- Late-night snacking may be more about boredom and less about hunger, experts say.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these suggestions to help prevent late-night snacking:
- Before you snack, ask yourself if you're eating because you're hungry, bored, anxious or simply because it's a habit.
- Eat dinner later.
- Save your dessert for later in the evening.
- Instead of snacking, go to bed earlier to make sure you get plenty of sleep. This should help you stave off emotional eating.
