Health Tip: Curb Late-Night Snacking
(HealthDay News) -- Late-night snacking may be more about boredom and less about hunger, experts say.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these suggestions to help prevent late-night snacking:
Before you snack, ask yourself if you're eating because you're hungry, bored, anxious or simply because it's a habit.
Eat dinner later.
Save your dessert for later in the evening.
Instead of snacking, go to bed earlier to make sure you get plenty of sleep. This should help you stave off emotional eating.
