How to Curb Late Evening Binging and Lose Weight

Skipping meals is a no-no if you find yourself ransacking the kitchen late in the evening. If this is your issue, I would suggest eating 5-6 meals a day (breakfast, lunch, dinner, with 2 or 3 snacks between). Also, plan your meals 2-3 hours apart. For example (if eating 6 meals a day):


Breakfast 8 amSnack 11 amLunch 1 pmSnack 3 pmDinner 6 pmSnack 8 pm


If you prefer counting calories, be sure to divide your calories between your meals, allowing no more than 400 calories each for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and no more than 200 calories each for your snacks.If you prefer portion control, be sure that half your plate (of regular size) consists of high fiber vegetables, 1/4 whole grains, and 1/4 protein for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and for your snacks choose high fiber fruits and vegetables. There are portion control plates, bowls and lunch containers out there so I would suggest investing in a few if you prefer to go this route.  For more online weight loss help, visit http://www.HerMindandBody.com
