How to stop over eating in the evenings and get better results without doing anything crazy

We have all done it.

Your favourite program comes on and all of a sudden

2 tubs of hagen daas and a pizza later you are lamenting your lack of self control.

Those few pringles definitely start popping and you can’t stop!

Your calorie deficit is smashed to smithereens and you already uttering the worlds diet starts Monday.

So how can you stop this happening and still get the fat loss results you want.

Eating at night and weight gain

Tip 1. - Eat more protein in your dinner meal.

Your evening dinner is usually the meal where you eat the most. Increasing the amount of Protein and Vegetables in this meal will keep you fuller for longer.

Stir Fries are an easy meal to use for this purpose and only take 10-15 minutes to make too.

Use a lean source of protein (yep vegetarian).

Tip 2 - Keep the high Calorie foods out of the house

Let’s be honest if it’s out of sight it’s out of mind.

So keep the chocolate out of the house and you are less likely to eat it.

I’m not saying you can’t eat it but you know that having multi-packs of snickers ( that were meant for your kids lunch boxes) in the house is a recipe for some late night high calorie snacking.

If in doubt keep it out.

Tip 3 - Clear everything away.

Clearing away the plates for the dinner and making sure the remains of dinner are cleared away make eating time finished.

It’s like a ritual if you like.

Put the left overs away ( use them for lunch tomorrow) and you are less likely to pick at it.

Tip -4 Keep Low calories snacks close

If you really feel like you need a snack then keeping some of the following foods around will help you keep the calories low.

  • Berries
  • Low calorie Ice Cream Like Oppo
  • Vegetables
  • Fibre one Bar
  • High Protein yoghurt Like Arla or Skyr

Eating these foods are more likely to keep your calories lower and enable you to hit your calorie goals

Tip-5 Go to bed

The temptation to stay up and finish that show you have been binge-watching.

We associate watching TV with eating - I blame cinemas.

So go to bed earlier

  • Read a book in bed
  • Make the room as dark as possible
  • Leave iPads , phones out of the room
  • Keep the room cool
  • Have an epsom Salt-Bath
