    Yeah my boyfriends suggestion on sweet things was “limit yourself to one chocolate bar a week, then you will only break off a small piece every day and save the rest” uhhh no, I’ll scarf the whole thing down in about 0.378 minutes and be grumpy the rest of the week because I have no chocolate. I just don’t buy and keep in the house what I don’t want to be tempted by as a snack. Literally my cupboards have no snacks ☹️ it’s sad but it works.

    If you live alone, the best thing is to not buy snacks in the first place. I bought some rice cakes to last me a “few days”...yesterday lol

    With that said, I live in the middle of nowhere and rely on public transit (infrequent) so I really have to go out of my way if I want to buy a snack :#

    I had toast, but then I asked myself would I like some bread to go with all that peanut butter? PB is usually a problem food for me, but I cracked. I can't stand that crappy BP2 sh.t anymore. I guess I figure have the real thing or just write it off forever. But danggggg I love PB too much. I'm conflicted. :confused:

    Well my spelling stinks today!

    Have you tried snacking on cheese or meat when the urge calls??

    I do this...even have a box of pre cut slices of cheese ready....then I just grab 1 or 2 slices.

    I used to have this problem, more at work than at night though. What helps me in both situations is Intermittent Fasting. Even though I want to eat something I can't, so I don't. And during my non fasting times (eating window) I make sure that I eat what I want so that I don't feel like I'm depriving myself. Perhaps you can have a time at night where you stop eating, thus minimizing snacking.

    I have a MAJOR sweet tooth and am a night time snacker. I am fighting this two ways: 1.saving enough calories for the end of the day so I can snack guilt-free or
    2.drinking flavored waters-this has successfully helped me kick my 2 liter a day soda habit and the sweet flavors trick me into thinking I'm having something more substantial (when in reality it's only like 10 calories a bottle) so I am not as hungry or feeling deprived of tasty sweets!!
    Also, I do feel more satisfied and less likely to snack after a high protein meal

    Maybe if you snack on celery, cucumbers or carrot sticks. Love cold food with a nice crunch. Low in calories-- no guilt there!

    Celery with low-calorie dip is a near daily snack for me. I eat RIDICULOUS amounts of celery.
