    Evening munchies

    Hi can anyone give me any ideas? I am calorie counting using mfp and I have realised that everyday I do really good in the day time but then when I put my daughter to bed at 7pm between then and bedtime I'm always starving and end up over eating, sometimes big meals but usually it's snacking after my meal... Just can't seem to stop I always feel starving after a day running around after my daughter/trying to do the housework and keep the dog under control... I also kind of think in my mind I think I deserve a great of something nice like chocolate after a hard day, I've tried just having a little small thing like chomps, milk way etc but it just makes me want more than one haha.
    Urgh feeling like a pig

    I know the feeling, I find the evenings hardest!

    I've been weighing out olives and pickles haha, sounds odd but pickles do seem to help curb the sweet tooth!

    What about popcorn? Low calorie and tasty. Sweet and salted is yum x

    I must admit I get round it by not having my main meal until 10pm - that way I can just have a small snack in the evening knowing my dinner is still to come, lol.

    How about almonds? I used to measure out 100 cals worth of them to snack on. Also Options hot choc sachets are great for helping you feel like you've had a chocolate fix, and having a drink will often assuage hunger pangs too. Alpen Light bars with a coffee are another favourite, or Eat Natural bars if you have a few more calories to play with. Low fat rice pudding is another good one, I found - those little pots of Ambrosia ones. xx

    I find it absolutely fine, to be honest! It really suits me, and I'm half the weight I started at, so it seems to work, lol. xx

    Yes, in the Calorie Counting Diaries section, Tracy's Journey Into The Unknown (I think, lol). It's not very exciting though! xx

    I'm the same.

    I find that if I eat late I don't snack afterwards, but I definitely guilty of having meals that are too big, so I've dusted off my scales since I started yesterday.

    Good luck.

    I really like popcorn and have bought a multipack (6 small bags) of Tyrrells Sweet and Salty - 12g bag is just 61 cals.

    Also enjoy the odd solero now and again (though quite a bit of sugar) - each lolly is only 94 cals.
