My pantry is evil. And the evil that resides in it only comes out at night.
Ok, that’s not true.
My pantry is not home to an evil spirit or ghoul. But sometimes I would rather believe that my pantry is evil than to take responsibility for my own actions.
Hello. My name is Kim. And I am a night time snacker.
And if I am being truly honest I have to admit that my nighttime snack choices are not healthy. I love me some chips and dip after the kids are in bed. I have also been known to hide junk food in my house and take it out after the kids are asleep so I won’t have to share it with them, #momoftheyear #momfail
Not snacking at night has probably been one of the greatest challenges I have had to overcome in my health journey. And for most of my clients, it is their biggest challenge in their weight loss and healthy eating journey.
So, how do you stop the late night snacking?
There are a couple of strategies that I have employed over the years so that I don’t reach into the pantry at night. As you choose the strategies that will work for you, it helps to remember that there is no silver bullet to end late night snacking. One strategy may work one night, and then you may have to use a different one the next night.
Night time snacking is a real challenge. It is a real thing. And it is really detrimental to our weight loss and to our health.
