A simple way to limit snacking in the evening: brush your teeth after dinner.

Earlier this week I wrote about the potential benefits of an overnight fast. Not eating between dinner and breakfast can have metabolic benefits that may help with weight control.

Of course, this means resisting the temptation of snacking in the evening. Something that might help you keep from eating in the evening is to brush your teeth after dinner.

Since most people brush their teeth right before going to bed, this acts as a signal that you are finished eating for the day. Simply moving that signal from bedtime to earlier in the evening may limit snacking after dinner. Try it!
