    Did not want to read and run...

    I have never done SW so can't answer you about your snack.

    But as for eating late at night...the consensus is that it is okay as long as you do not exceed your allowed intake for the day.

    Love Mini xxx

    think what you had its ok syn wise as for eating late at night. i do it but i dont do it all the time usually i am finished for the night by 9pm.

    its probably ok but we are all different. just keep an eye on your losses and if you think you arent doing as well as you think you should have done and you have kept to the diet then drop it.
    have a good week!

    oh remember if you eat after 12 midnight its a new day you are on lol! so you need to make sure you eat your healthy extras on the right day!

    IMO... as long as you consume less than you expend then you shall lose weight.... I think it will be harder to digest if you eat late at night, however, if it keeps you on plan then that's ok. I usually have a HEB toast with laughing cow triangles for supper. Something to look forward to. Good luck

    It's a myth that what time you eat will effect your weight loss, it's the amount of food (calories) you consume within a 24 hour period, not when you consume them :)
