Keep Your Refrigerator Late Night Friendly


Choices

 

Reluctantly, you turn off your television after watching your favorite sitcom. Before trudging to bed, you start to put the bag of potato chips you were snacking on back into your kitchen cabinet. However, you suddenly realize you’ve emptied the entire bag. Disheartened, you reason you’ll never lose weight if you can’t gain control of your midnight munchies. If you can relate to this situation, discovering how to keep your refrigerator late night friendly might be the key that unlocks your weight loss success.

  Many people eat mindlessly while watching television, surfing the internet, or engaging in some other type of activity at night. While recovering from a stressful workday, they relax while consuming a massive amount of empty calories. To prevent yourself from overeating late at night, strive to consume filling, healthy meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If you’re still hungry after dinner, satisfy your cravings with waistline friendly snacks such as:

  • Raw veggies
  • Fresh fruit
  • Plain Greek yogurt
  • A cup of low-fat milk
  • A handful of nuts
  • A serving of grilled chicken breast
  • A serving of canned tuna 

Popcorn is another tasty, low-calorie snack. A cup of air-popped popcorn contains a mere 31 calories. When shopping for this movie theater staple, select whole grain kernels. Avoid flavored microwavable options due to their propensity to contain diacetyl. This chemical has been linked to a serious type of lung disease. You can conserve calories while enhancing the flavor of your popcorn by adding seasonings such as:

  • Chili powder
  • Curry powder and coconut oil
  • Rosemary, sage, thyme, and olive oil
  • Garlic powder and olive oil
  • Smoked paprika and olive oil

Dieting shouldn’t preclude you from ever enjoying a late night snack again. Instead of grazing on calorie laden, heartburn inducing snacks such as pizza or barbecue flavored corn chips, opt for real, healthy options. Avoid processed, 100-calorie snack packs as well. These alternatives often provide few nutrients while containing copious amounts of saturated fat, salt, and sugar. If you need help restocking your kitchen with healthy, late night snacks, consider scheduling a free, initial consultation with a representative at a Metabolic Research Center today.
