Eat This at Night, and You’ll Practically Burn Fat in Your Sleep

Sure, they may be a quick fix; but if you don’t use the converted energy, those calories will be stored as fat, instead.


For those who get the munchies right before bed, this is for you.


By Brooke Nelson, Reader's Digest

Full disclaimer: We all know that regularly eating at night could lead to weight gain. That’s especially true when it comes to snacks that contain refined carbs and starches—like bread, rice, potato chips, and pretzels—which are low in fiber and high in sugar. Sure, they may be a quick fix; but if you don’t use the converted energy, those calories will be stored as fat, instead. Talk about bad news for your waistline.

Still, experts say it’s best not to go to bed hungry, either (and here’s why!) So when your tummy starts rumbling after you turn out the lights, you’re probably better off reaching for a low-carb, high-protein snack.

If you’re ravenous, here’s a good choice: mozzarella string cheese sticks. At fewer than 100 calories per pop, these tiny-but-mighty snacks provide a whopping six grams of protein with just one gram of carbs, as well as extra nutrients like calcium and vitamin D. Plus, you won’t have to worry about overeating, thanks to their prepackaged portions.

For lactose-intolerant folks (or those who simply don’t care for dairy), a small handful of nuts like almonds and walnuts will do the trick, too. Although both types of nuts are high in fat and calories, they’re also jam-packed with plenty of protein, vitamin E, selenium, magnesium, and other healthy nutrients. Just remember that when it comes to nuts, a little can go a long way.

Still not satisfied? These healthy snacks will curb your cravings and STILL help you lose weight.
