There’s nothing worse than a late night craving. You’re trying to sleep, but all you can think about is that slice of pizza or that pint of ice cream. But before you give in and raid the fridge, there are a few things you should know.
First, late night cravings are often more psychological than physical. If you’re tired and stressed, your brain is looking for a quick fix of sugar or fat to give you some energy. And secondly, late night cravings are usually for unhealthy junk food. So if you do give in, try to make healthier choices like fruits or nuts.
Additionally, try to drink some water before bed. Often times, cravings are actually just thirst in disguise. And lastly, if all else fails, brush your teeth. The minty freshness will help curb your appetite.
And finally, if you find yourself really struggling with late night cravings, there are some things you can do to help yourself. Try drinking a glass of water or herbal tea before bed. And if you’re really feeling tempted, brush your teeth so you won’t want to eat anything else.
With these tips in mind, you can hopefully resist those late night cravings and get a good night’s sleep. Sweet dreams!
