Some members might have grappled with this issue but I have a big problem when it comes to late night snack attacks. I tend to work out late afternoons and eat reasonably healthy and light dinners, but each night around 1 or 2 a.m., I wake up hungry with a big urge to eat a big snack. This usually amounts to munching a candy bar, chocolate chip cookies or anything that has sugar in it. I know, I know that is the worst thing that anyone can do, especially late night/early morning when all that added calories (not to mention refined sugar -easy carbs) will be converted to fat since you will not use any of it.
What is a solution for those late night cravings....anyone able to eat something healthy, satisfying and at the same time not add any extra pounds on you? Water just doesn't do it for me. I need something solid.
I have gained muscle over the last few months (went from 220 to almost 240 pounds) but at the same time, I have seen my waistline go from a 37" to 39".....so some fat is definitely making it's way in the abdominal area. My guess is the late night snacking has a big thing to do with it.
