    I am currently fasting from all unhealthy snacks (with the exception of holidays and special occasions) and have been for over a year now. When I get hungry late at night, I actually don’t feel bad about it, because the only options available to me are healthy ones. Sometimes I’ll have more dinner or a salad or something.

  52. Colleen Maul says:

    As a mother of 3 its hard to brake this habit . yes we know its bad but yet some of us moms finally get our brakes when every one is asleep and the lights are low . Your fav show comes on and finally peace and quiet. Then you sit down with your fav snack or your food you love to just enjoy for your self. This is the hardest thing to stop.

  53. Brenna M says:

    This had been my downfall for the past year or so (cereal, Oreos, etc. :/ ), but I was living in an extremely stressful situation and have recently gotten out of it. I have been eating way less late at night and trying to go to bed earlier…before I start thinking about Oreos. Ha! 🙂

  55. Sandy Weinstein says:

    late nite or after dinner snacking is my downfall. i can go most of the day not hungry, then at nite, will eat. does not help being on the pc either. so i try not to have any sweets, candy, or high calorie foods in the house. will have apple, banana, fruit, or some soup, popcorn, no butter. and flavored water or tea
