Turn off the TV and get to bed early!

9 years ago

Pick a time in the evening (at least a few hours before your bedtime), and don't eat past that time. It sounds like it should be easy to do. But if you're like me, the few hours before going to bed is prime time for grazing. And that's bad. I found turning off the television before bedtime can help reduce the temptation to sit and snack. I do best when I make up my mind to get in bed earlier than normal, and read until I'm too tired to keep my eyes open any longer.

The first few nights are going to be tough, especially if you're in the habit of staying up late watching television. But that's all it is, a habit, an unhealthy habit. You can choose to change your habit to a healthy one. Give it a try for a week or two, and see if you notice a difference. You might even lose a view pounds.
