There are several tips you can use to curb late night snacking.

  • Eat often and consistently during the day to prevent a drop in blood sugar, which can cause cravings at night.
  • Boost the amount of protein and fiber you have in your dinner to keep you feeling fuller longer.
  • Set a sleep alarm for two hours after dinner. Cortisol levels drop as night time falls, but rise again if we sleep too late, which cause an increased can urge to snack.
  • If you must snack, pick healthy options such as fruit and nuts, popcorn and yoghurt.
