Late Night Cravings | What to eat at night | How to eat healthy at night | Fitness and Nutrition Expert | iTheFitDiva
When late-night cravings strike, it can be easy to indulge.Sometimes your stomach doesn’t get the memo that it’s actually time to sleep…not time to eat.First of all, it’s kind of a myth that you won’t burn off anything you eat right before bed.So if you’re actually hungry, you should eat — no matter how late it is.If you’re going to eat before bed, pick something relatively light and leave some buffer time before you lay down.And avoid anything fatty, spicy, super sugary, or caffeinated.A good nighttime snack would be around 200 calories or less containing protein, complex carbs and some healthy fats.
Any of these light-but-filling combos should keep you full till morning.
1 cup carrot sticks + 3 tablespoons hummus
Banana bread with peanut butter
Low fat and sugar free whey protein bars
High fibre cereal and skim milk
Fresh fruits and nuts
Wholegrain crackers with cheese
Wholegrain toast with nut butter of your choice
Some of my personal favourites are:
Pistachio nuts – Pistachios are a nutrient-rich, simple snack.research shows that snacking on pistachios compared to other common snack foods like pretzels leads to more weight loss and greater reductions in cardiovascular disease risk factors.
Fresh fruits and nuts like almonds, walnuts, cashews and peanuts
Flavoured greek yogurt with homemade granola
Or just plain milk.
