i try to eat super heathy but i find my biggest down fall is mindless eating in front of the tv at night. my fi just loves biscuits and nutella at night and i just cant help my self when he is having his treat and i end up scoffing loads
my new tip!!! pop in my teeth whitening kit. cant scoff biscuits with a mouth guard in =)
any one else have tips for getting over daily food challanges?

Good idea. Similarly, I brush my teeth as soon as I am done eating for the day so I won’t be tempted to have an evening snack.
I also keep lots of healthy snacks ready and within reach. I cut up veggies and keep them in a bowl in the fridge so I can grab a handful when I’m hungry, and have frozen fruit in the freezer all the time for a sweet treat. My FI really likes ice cream, so if he has a bowl while we are watching a show, I’ll microwave a bowl of frozen raspberries to eat at the same time.

OMG that is my worst snacking time!! I love anything sweet so this is my struggle. I love my skinny cow ice cream cones but I do try to stick with water.

Between when I get off work and dinner is my danger zone. I have been trying to combat this by drinking loads of water in the afternoon, but it’s been met with minimal results! Luckily we have healthy foods in the house so when I do partake the snacking is healthish…

Don’t buy anything at the store that you wouldn’t be ok snacking on all night. we just do not buy cookies, chips, frozen fatty things, etc PERIOD!

I love to snack at night, too. The way I do it is to allow for it and plan for it during the day. I use myfitnesspal, and I always factor in a half cup of frozen yogurt or another treat, so I know I won’t feel deprived in the evening when FI is snacking on everything in sight. If I can’t “afford” it in my calorie allotment I stay longer at the gym and burn enough to cover the snack.
