I have found that I need to stay busy and distract myself from potential night time cravings.
I started turning off the kitchen lights at night. It symbolizes to me that the kitchen is “closed” for tonight and whatever I want to eat, I’ll just have to wait until the morning. This trick seems to work very well for me.
Sometimes, I still feel my self-control diminishing, I have to turn to something else. Recently, I have started to turn on the Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods. This show instantly curves my appetite. Not only do I not want anything to eat anymore, sometimes I can’t even finish drinking my water.
If you have never watched this show, try it!
