Attacks of evening gluttony are familiar to anyone who has ever tried to lose weight. During the day there is always something to do in order to forget about food, but in the evening he comes himself - zhor. How to cope with the habit of eating too much at night?
When dieting, do not starve. Try to eat small meals 4-5 times a day, trying to eat a varied and balanced diet.
Have dinner 3-4 hours before bedtime. Moreover, the dinner should be as light as possible, non-nutritious, but varied. Let it be a couple of arugula leaves; cherry salad with mozzarella and fresh basil, seasoned with olive oil; a slice of steamed fish flavored with lemon juice. It won't take long to prepare such a low-calorie dinner, and it will be an immense pleasure to consume.
Try to use fewer spices and herbs in your dinner meals. These ingredients whet your appetite, and you can eat much more than you planned.
If you find it difficult to go to bed on an empty stomach, drink a glass of kefir or eat some low-fat yogurt half an hour before bedtime. In principle, you can limit yourself to half a mug of hot water in which 2 teaspoons of honey are dissolved. A warm drink will soothe your hunger, while honey will help you fall asleep quickly and soundly.
Make it a rule to take a walk before dinner. Walking, even if it lasts 20-30 minutes, helps relieve stress. But often it is his people who tend to "seize", often being overly carried away by this process.
Try not only to keep yourself, but also your refrigerator "in good shape." If in the evening you, in search of something tasty, open it and find only a few fruits and vegetables inside, and not sausages and mayonnaise, then this is guaranteed to save you from extra calories. Because of which the next day you yourself will sprinkle ashes on your head.
Eliminate alcohol from your diet. The fact is that it provokes a brutal appetite. After a glass of wine, it will be more difficult for you to control how much you eat at dinner.
Try aromatherapy. Make it a habit to bathe in the evenings with soothing essential oils of lavender, geranium and more. Just do not forget that before adding to the bath, 5-6 drops of oil must be dissolved either in milk or mixed with sea salt. Let the aroma lamp appear in your bedroom. Light it up every night a couple of hours before bed, using essential oils to suppress your appetite. Cinnamon or bergamot oils work well with this function.
