Fat to Fit at 59

My quest to lose 50 pounds in 150 days. (Now that you know about it, I'm committed.)

Day 27—Night-time naughtiness December 12, 2009

Is nighttime noshing your nemesis?

I don’t know about you, but I can make it through the day successfully staying within my eating plan. But come nighttime, all I want to do is eat!

Here are some tried-and-true tips for overcoming twilight treat temptation:

1. Eat a HUGE salad for dinner. The time it takes to eat it—and its fiber—will fill you up. If you need a sweet top-off, indulge in something small like a bite-size chocolate.

2. Popcorn—it’s a great filler-upper! (Hey, lay off the butter!)

3. Brush your teeth as soon as you get the urge to splurge on after-dinner tidbits.

4. Find a distraction. Have you always wanted to try knitting? Scrapbooking? Piano? Activity keeps your mind busy—and off of food.

5. When a snack attack occurs, take time out to exercise. You’ll soon forget about food.

6. Eat—but eat healthy and small-scale.

7. Plan ahead: Leave a calorie buffer to use up at night.

Do you have more tips to share? (Again, that’s what that little comment box is for!) Until tomorrow, stay confident and resolute!

    – Eat only at the table, not on the couch.
    – Luigi’s Italian Ice is great! They’re in little cups and have 100 calories each. It’s nice to have the serving already measured out; otherwise I’d eat three times as much (& 300 calories!)
    – Have some Green Tea with a little honey. It’ll help fill you up, the honey will hit your sweet tooth, and it’s full of antioxidants
