Health Tip: Curb Late-Night Snacking

-- Late-night snacking may be more about boredom and less about hunger, experts say.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these suggestions to help prevent late-night snacking:

  • Before you snack, ask yourself if you're eating because you're hungry, bored, anxious or simply because it's a habit.
  • Eat dinner later.
  • Save your dessert for later in the evening.
  • Instead of snacking, go to bed earlier to make sure you get plenty of sleep. This should help you stave off emotional eating.
