The jury is still out on whether eating late at night leads to weight gain. But one thing is certain: if you want to lose weight, you need to create a calorie deficit. The number of calories you consume or cut per day makes a big difference.
But when late-night hunger pangs strike, we recommend having one of the following healthy snacks rather than a few slices of pizza or a bowl of ice cream.These tasty bedtime snacks are low in calories, good for your health and will help you in losing weight!
1. AVOCADO WITH COTTAGE CHEESE
Cottage cheese is packed with natural protein and fills you up without a lot of calories. Studies have shown that a higher protein intake (for example, through dairy products) can lead to weight loss success. Cottage cheese also contains the essential amino acid tryptophan. This calms the nervous system and makes it easier to fall asleep. Tip: If you add a little avocado to your cottage cheese, you provide your body with high-quality fatty acids. These polyunsaturated fats are good for your cholesterol levels and cardiovascular system.
