mrsmoore. i was the one who posted a few weeks ago about eating too many points. to be perfectly honest, the week i ate over by 24 points, i lost 4 lbs. i ate over by 15 the next week and lost 1.8, and ate over by 4 last week and still lost 2.4. i know these results ARENT typical. but give yourself time to adjust to the program. if you go over a little, dont beat yourself up over it, and if you have a week where you gain, its OKAY! its just a number on the scale. my personal belief is that if youre hungry, you should eat, but before you eat, you need to make sure the hunger is PHYSICAL hunger, not emotional/ boredom hunger.
i am the typical college student. i am up late most nights and i too get hungry at night. what i would recommend for night time munchies is orville orville redenbacher smart pop. its 1 pt/ bag, and i spray some "i cant believe its not butter" spray on it and add some garlic bc im a garlic fiend =) but its quite good for only 1 point! and if im super hungry ill eat a jello fat free 100 cal snack pack pudding cups, which is 2 pts. so thats a 3 pt snack thats quite filling!
let me know if you need any more suggestions bc i have lots of tricks! best of luck!
