Night time cravings


Recommended Posts

It could be that you have a habit of snacking at that time in which case you need to find some kind of distraction technique - many people find crafting/knitting etc is a good way to occupy the mind, or you could read a book, run a bath etc.... cravings are only temporary & DO pass.

If you are genuinely hungry then it could be that you are feeding your sugar dragon earlier in the day with foods that spike blood sugar, such as fruit or fruit & nut bars, or you could simply be not eating enough. Additional protein & fat will help either way.

Ok, I'd say increase the fat a little in each of your meals (with the exclusion of postWO obviously!), and then try to do something that occupies your mind in the evenings to try & break the cycle - it sounds more like a habit... Even something simple like mentally closing the kitchen, or cleaning your teeth can help.
