Late night snacking: I used to do the same thing, now instead I eat breakfast and I divide my dinner in half and eat the second half later at night. By eating less at dinner my late night cravings come earlier, too, so I don't end up eating within two hours of going to bed. Hope it helps! :)

I am a late night snacker. I usually skip breakfast in order to keep my calorie intake lower. Any suggestions.
