Conquer Night Time Grazing

 In Blog post, Guest Posts

A firm healthy eating plan with all the best intentions is some times just not enough. We know what we’re supposed to eat.In fact, we’re looking forward to following the healthy eating plan. We’ve done the shop and prepared our meals, but there’s some switch or block that happens at the end of the day letting it all unravel.

This post is for you.

There is an awkward elephant barricading your good intentions at the end of the day.  Even among the most dedicated, this is the elephant of deep-rooted, unhealthy eating habits leading to uncontrollable overeating. Especially under the cloak of night and in the privacy of one’s own home, a few treats combined with a stressful day can easily snowball toward a binge. You’re certainly not alone when feelings of stress and anxiety lead to the despairing sight of an entire day’s healthy eating unwind.

You’re certainly not alone. I’ve written about practical strategies to prevent and overcome the despairing sight of an entire day’s healthy eating unwind.

    Really great tips! I particularly like the tip about having your last meal earlier. This works well for me too. I’m also accustomed to having dinner be the largest meal of the day, but have found switching that up can be helpful, too. Another tip that may be useful is linked to behavioral psychology from the likes of thinkers like Richard Thaler. Foods you see frequently – perhaps a bowl of snacks you pass by all the time, are more likely to be eaten simply because you notice them more. People who remove these from their “eye-line,” or replace them with healthier options, can naturally lead to reduced snacking or healthier snacking.
