How to fight the night binge impulse?
I'm a firm believer in discipline in service to desire - disciplined eating so that I can satisfy my desires on the special treats without meeting or surpassing my college dimensions.
I find that I'm good until about 9 or 10, and then all bets are off.
Anyone else with the same night binge impulse and tips on how to avoid it?
cup of tea. If it's sweetness you're craving, then there are tonnes of herbal flavours. (personally, I have decaf orange pekoe, but my SO loves the flavours - I call it hot juice...)
Hi Agrayf, could it be that your are disciplining yourself a little TOO much during the day? I have found that when I eat too little or deny myself too much during the day, I have a lot less self control at night.
Sometimes, if I had a light supper, I will have a banana or a clementine, or a glass of skim milk.
If I believe I have consumed enough calories for the day, I go with a cup of some Celestial Seasonings tea. If I don't want to have to get up at 3 a.m., then I just floss and brush. I am way too lazy to brush twice a night.
I try to stay as far away from the kitchen as possible. Going to bed also works.
I agree with the post about brushing your teeth. In a similar vein, I find it helpful to spray some sort of room fragrance spray - the scent of something floral or woodsy usually kills my desire to eat an entire pint of ice cream. Usually!
