Strategic Snacking

There’s a dangerous threat to your healthy diet lurking out there and you may not even realize it: Arriving home at the end of a tiring day with an empty stomach and low blood sugar . It sounds so harmless, but it’s not!

This is the evil monster that leads people to overeat at night. It happens for a simple physiological reason–low blood sugar and a tiring day make your will-power weak, so you give in to the powerful pleas of your empty stomach.

Here’s a solution: Have a snack 20-30 minutes before you arrive home. It should be a fruit, yogurt, healthy crackers, or something with some complex carbohydrate to get your blood sugar up. Now when you arrive home, your brain and your stomach are in a better position to help you eat right.
