We are aware that eating before bed is a bad habit that we must pay for with extra pounds and restless sleep. Looking for a way to combat it, we found 10 simple hacks that will make you forget your way to the fridge after dinner.
Have Eggs For Breakfast
A heavy weapon in the fight against nighttime appetite is a large breakfast, especially one that includes eggs. Eggs help you lose weight faster and are twice as substantial as cereals or bread.
They also reduce hunger and calorie consumption at lunch and in the next 24 hours.
Don’t Buy Tempting Snacks
If you don’t want to test your willpower, it’s best not to buy your favorite snacks, or you may lose control of yourself in the evening.
If they are already in the refrigerator, seducing you with their delicious appearance, you can put them in a non-transparent bag (which you can tie with duct tape and put on the shelf furthest from the refrigerator, just in case).
Avoid Empty Calories
Foods rich in simple carbohydrates (fried foods, fast food, sweet sodas, cakes, fatty sauces, and alcohol) are sure to take you to the fridge for another snack.
Halve The Amount Of Salt
Salt and other spices intensify the feeling of hunger. To accentuate the natural flavor of foods, you can season them with onion, garlic, and herbs instead of salt.
The broccoli heads added to the evening salad will keep you feeling fuller for longer.
High-intensity exercise has been shown not only to burn calories but to suppress your appetite as well. In addition, it helps to relieve the stress of the day that usually pushes us to the fridge.
An overnight hunger bout can be “frozen” by lowering the room temperature. Also, at a temperature of 17-18 ° C (63-63 ° F), the body burns 7% more calories than in heat and congestion.
Drink Mineral Water
We often mistake thirst for hunger, so instead of yogurt, you could drink a glass of mineral water and feel your hunger fade.
It wouldn’t hurt to have a glass of this useful liquid on your nightstand to keep it out of the kitchen.
