Default Bedtime Lo-Carb Snacks

Looking for some suggestions on Lo-carb bedtime snacks. I have a little sweet tooth, nothing bad, but I like to have a little snack before I go to bed if I can.

Maybe a cup of hot tea with a packet of Splenda or some DaVinci's syrup. I normally do not eat anything before bed.

a high protein jello or fruit flavored drink at about 70 calories would be good to help keep you sustained and burn fat as you sleep. many available on dietdirect.com.

I agree on the tea! They make AMAZING teas, and nothing prepares you for bed like that lovely warmth in your belly. I myself love all the holiday mint/spice teas, and then there's vanilla chai, sugar cookie, chocolate raspberry, cinnamon apple, etc etc etc! It's like dessert in a cup! One packet of whatever sweetener you use (NOT sugar, of course, I use stevia/erythritol [Truvia] because it's been proven to not cause insulin production) and a tablespoon of half-and-half or cream is 20-30 calories and delicious.

I used to have a really sweet tooth, and after a week of no sweets AT ALL (not even artificially sweet food) I found that I needed much less sweetener in my drinks and such. I would try doing that if you can. It's easy to avoid sweets if you tell yourself that you can have sweets after the week is over--just sparingly!

As much as eating does rev your metabolism, sleeping also burns very few calories and slows your metabolism down. So do try to avoid eating anything caloric before bed! A few calories every night before bed will REALLY add up in the long run.

I love a cup of something hot to drink. I usually don't like sweet coffee, but in the evening, occasionally I will make a dessert coffee with heavy cream and SF vanilla or caramel syrup. Hits the spot.

I just had the most delicious bedtime snack... I took some frozen strawberries and blueberries, thawed them out they were slightly warm with lots of juice on the bottom and I added two tablespoons of coconut milk... YUMMY !

I will be bad. lol. I LOVE an Irish Whiskey now and then, coffee, whiskey and top with whipped cream, sweetened with S/F vanilla syrup. I am thinking along the lines of sweet tastes, as that is what you mentioned.

Whipped cream with dark cocoa powder and stevia and vanilla extract. My indulgence about once a month.

Berries and cream or full fat yogurt.

Toasted pecans in butter with a sprinkle of stevia and cinnamon.

S/F dessert such as a Bavarian, custard, cheesecake

Cream cheese balls rolled in dark cocoa powder.

I don't eat after dinner, so my suggestions may be a bit heavy for a snack. I have occasionally had a square of 90% dark chocolate with my Irish whiskey. If you don't drink, even a nice dessert coffee with cream and the S/F flavoured syrups would be nice.
