Healthy and filling midnight snacks (or 3:30 AM snacks)?


Recommended Posts

One thing that always seems to trip me up, even after a day of eating very well, is late night hunger. I sometimes wake up at 3:30ish in the morning very hungry, and while I've tried eating a yogurt cup or applesauce, it almost never fills me up and I wind up going for an entire bagel or something similar before I feel full enough to go back to sleep. 


So basically, what are some suggestions for either good late night snacks that aren't a full meal or any tips on making this stop altogether? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

First I'd try to add more protein and fiber to your dinners, that could help you last out the night. I know I wake up hungry if I don't have a filling enough healthy dinner.


But the same applies for the midnight snack. Try having some precooked chicken lying around in the fridge and eat about 3oz of that? Or even a packet of tuna?
