Constant nighttime cravings can destroy your diet. Here, tips to break away from late-night snacking and get your eating cycle back on track.
Question: "I eat little during the day but snack all night long. Can I retrain my appetite?"

Answer: Yes. To break out of your cycle, you must start eating breakfast, even if it's something small, says Milton Stokes, RD, a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association. "By shifting calories to the morning hours, you will ensure that your nighttime cravings don't have as much of a pull."

Start off with a piece of fruit, then gradually add a serving of whole grain and a source of lean protein, until you're consuming a meal consisting of about 350 calories.

I'm ok for breakfast and lunch since I'm at work, however, when I'm at home, I have to cook for dinner and eat a lot and feel an urge for late night snacking.
