How to Avoid Late Night Snacking

The New Year has begun and people everywhere are beginning their weight loss resolutions. While dieting during the day may be easy, sometimes sticking to your diet at night can be a challenge. If you are one of those who snack late at night, here are some tips below.

Here are some tips from Dr. Wayne Andersen, founder of Take Shape For Life (www.TSFL.com) and author of Dr. A’s Habits of Health, on How To Avoid Late-Night Snacking.

1) Change the evening activity that you usually do…if you normally watch TV after dinner, go outside and take a walk or play a match of tennis, garden…just change up the old routine.

2) Go to bed earlier and tape your shows to watch at a completely different time, like Saturday morning.

3) Brush your teeth after your last meal and call it a night.

4) Write down the reasons you are Taking Shape; to have more energy, live longer, feel better, get into great shape, etc.

5) You need to decide how important it is to you and what you are willing to do (secondary choices) to reach your goal (for example: no alcohol, no desserts, stick with program, start walking daily, etc)
