Quick Late Night Snacks That Fight Fat

Quick Late Night Snacks That Fight Fat

As you go about your diet plan, one thing that you may find yourself struggling with from time to time is late night snacking. You're at home, bored, often alone, and there really isn't much to do. Except snack, that is. Or you're going to bed late so it's been a long time since your last meal and you're feeling anything from 'peckish' to plain ravenous!

But, if you want to see successful weight loss on your diet plan, you must find a way to either overcome this late night snacking habit, or choose wisely so that it doesn't cause an offset to your progress.

The important thing that you should remember is the fact that you can have a late night snack as long as the calories are accounted for. If, on the other hand that late night snack causes you to consume over and above your desired calorie intake for the day, then it's definitely an impediment to your progress!

You can either retire to bed earlier so you don't get to this hunger stage or else if you have to stay up late, select your snacks carefully so that you don't sabotage your weight loss program. Note: going to bed earlier in itself is an effective part of an overall weight management strategy.

The following late night snacks will help you see results because not only are they lower in calories, but they're loaded in nutrients that will help to calm your hunger so that you feel satisfied after eating them and don't go reaching for more.

Here are some quick ideas to get you started.

Yogurt With Flaxseeds

The first late night snack to consider is yogurt with some flaxseeds added in. This snack is great because it's going to give you a nice blend of proteins, carbohydrates, along with healthy dietary fats that will help to keep your blood sugar levels stable into the overnight fasting period.

Aim for half a cup of yogurt along with 2 tbsp of flaxseeds and you'll only be taking in around 200 calories with this snack.

Cottage Cheese With Peanut Butter

Next up on our list of snacks for the late-night period is cottage cheese along with natural peanut butter. Cottage cheese is a quality source of casein protein, which means it will digest for hours in the body, delivering a steady stream of amino acids to your muscle tissues.

For those who are doing hard workouts daily, this is important for good muscle building and repair.

The peanut butter that you have along with the cottage cheese will help to slow the digestion even further, so you won't wake up hungry.

Egg Scramble

If you're looking for a quick late night snack that's light on the body, try an egg white scramble. Scramble up some egg whites along with a little bit of low fat cheese and then top with salsa for added flavor.  

Or if this is too much trouble, eat a  gently-cooked, very soft-boiled egg (preferably organic so you get the best nutrients without the traces of pesticides, antibiotics, etc. leached by caged, egg-laying chickens) with all the goodness of the yolk remaining mainly intact (an excellent brain and eye food, it contains 3g of protein, and the yolks are packed with vitamin D, phosphorus, riboflavin, choline, and selenium).

This snack will only come in around 150-200 calories and will be filled with quality protein that your muscles need.

Peanut Butter Celery Sticks

Finally, the last great snack to consider when getting ready to turn in for the evening is some celery sticks smeared with peanut butter. Peanut butter is a rich source of healthy fats as well as protein and the celery hardly contains any calories at all.

This late-night snack should only come in at around 150 calories as well, so it's easily added to any diet plan.

Salads, Fruit (Oranges, Kiwis, Grapes, Blueberries, etc.)

Apart from celery, try snacking on other raw vegetables such as carrots, cos lettuce or kale or fruit which are rich in antioxidants to get more nutritional bang from your snack, provided you omit the heavy dressings, mayonaise, etc. If you need to use dressing use a very light one such as a drizzle of wine vinegar or lemon juice on your salad pieces. They are low in calories and additionally the fibre in these foods will help you to fill full so you don't sabotage your weight loss program.

So there you have some of the best late-night snacks that you should consider adding to your diet program. If you are really struggling with late night hunger to a large extent, then you should also consider a good appetite suppressant such as Phen 375, which will help you control this hunger so that you can stick with your diet plan and ensure that late night snacking does NOT derail your weight loss progress.
