So whats the better bedtime snack so not to gain weight, just maintain or even lose a bit.
A bowl of cereal (Life or Cheerios) w/ 2% milk or a small bowl of cottage cheese w/ a few cashews and a small spoon full of strawberry jam?
If I don't have a snack before bed, I usually wake up around 2am w/ my stomach growling. I eat dinner around 7:30'ish, but by my 10pm bedtime I'm feeling a little hungry. I've tried an piece of fruit or just a glass of milk, but it doesn't do the trick. I wake up in the middle of the night hungry again and I don't sleep well. I have a calorie burning job and have small healthy snacks through out the day.
As a little background, over the past 3 years I've lost 40+lbs on a change of diet and lots of hours on the bike. I'm pretty lean now and just trying to drop the last 5lbs or as the least maintain my current weight.
So I'm curious about the answers as to what is better for me so not to gain weight while I sleep.
