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.
