What do you do for evening munchies???

I have all the willpower in the world until 4pm hits. Then I become ravenous & could eat the couch! I eat a good breakfast, healthy filling lunch (usually a large salad & whole grain bread) and a couple of sensible snacks (fruit or protein bar). I also fill up on smart water so I know I am hydrated.

What do you do to tame the afternoon/evening munchies???

    fit and active popcorn, 60 calories for the whole bag....otherwise it's a home made smoothie with fruits and whey protein

    I eat heavier early on in the day so once dinner hits, I'm not as hungry. The one thing also really helps is I work out after work, before dinner, so once I'm done showering, I'm hungry but once I eat, I'm good for a couple hours before bed.

    i snack on Special K Fruit and Yogurt Cereal. 3/4 of a cup is 120 cals without milk. i also do a piece of fruit like an orange or even a handful of nuts like walnuts or pecans.

    if its after my dinner i don't like to eat but i will have a piece of gum to tame that urge.

    dido on the dry cereal! I had some last night... I was so hungry at about 8pm and headed straight for the cupboard. I could have went with chips... but instead I filled up on water, then had a handful of the new falvoured cheerios! tastes sweet without too many bad sugars or fats! :)

    A cup or so of baby carrots dipped in some fat free slad dressing seems to do the trick for me. Also, if it's late enough I just go to my bedroom and read or watch t.v.. It seems that if I am far enough from the kitchen, and interested in something else, I can curb the muchies...

    Maybe you could split your lunch in half & have some at lunchtime and the rest a couple of hours later? Just a thought...!

    Cup of coffee... drink it black or I use the sugar-free vanilla creamer stuff... it's way better than the "fat-free" at about 15-20 calories for 2 tbsp. That, or stay busy. If you don't have time to eat, you won't.

    And of course water, fruits, veggies, and I agree that Special K is pretty awesome.

    Carrot sticks and different flavors of hummus. It's so good! For something sweet my husband and I throw frozen berries into the microwave to defrost and slightly warm them and then sprinkle a sun crystal packet on top and put light whipped cream on them and sprinkle blueberry milled flax seed on top for some crunch and mmmmm it tastes 100% sinful.

    Thanks Everybody! GREAT suggestions! Working out in the evening might just do the trick, as I am not hungry after working out! (now, can I get the fam to leave me alone while I work out?!)
