I'm a calorie-tracker myself but I've found that my cravings are all carb-based, and every night it's carbs after 8pm that derail me and add between 200-800 calories to my day. Wanted to ask a couple quick questions:
1. Does going low-carb cut down cravings or is it better to satisfy those cravings?
2. What do you find is best for satisfying evening carb cravings? I tend to eat dinner at 6 pm and i don't sleep until between 11-2 am (college lifestyle, of course).
... It is never too late to be what you might have been.
Yes- one of the best things about a low carb plan is that the cravings monster pretty much vanishes!
But yeah if you're up that late, you should either eat a later supper or plan for a snack in the evenings. How about nuts? A slice of pb toast? Cheese and a favorite sliced veggie? Sometimes at night I like pepperoni slices cooked in the microwave til crisp , and eatern plain or with mustard. Mmm!
I get the 94% fat free Orv. Red. popcorn in the mini-bags. Lots of crunch factor to eat the whole bowl, and I feel full. Popcorn is a whole grain, too. But overall, the less carbs from the "white" groups, the better.
