You may have heard the eating before bed is a big-time “no no” for those looking to lose weight. Well, there’s good news, not every food that you eat past 7pm will be automatically deposited to your butt, thighs, and love handles. There are certain foods that you can eat as a late night snack that can actually INCREASE your fat loss results! The key is knowing which foods to eat, and which to avoid.
Here are some top pre-bedtime choices:
White Meat Animal Protein such as chicken or turkey. These choices are great because they digest slowly and have a very low insulin release.
Cottage Cheese is very slow digesting and coats the stomach to be released by the body over many hours. Just make sure you are using plain cottage cheese.
Green Vegetables: While these are not considered a protein, they contain virtually no calories are high in fiber, and they’re very filling.
A Slow-digesting, Low carb Protein Shake: Have one before bed literally every night. As a bed time ritual, it’s a great and tasty way to end the day.
Follow these simple rules when snacking at night and you’ll be on your way to a flatter belly with less cravings in no time.
