evening eating – results of a month’s monitoring


From November 27, 2013 to December 27, 2013, I kept track of my evening eating (see the tab ‘evening eating’, above).  Evening eating has been a problem for me for years.  After a good supper, I frequently begin a frenzy of trips to the refrigerator, to see what might be good to eat.

As a result of keeping track earlier this month (https://alexandra128.wordpress.com/2013/11/25/), I know that I can help my evening eating by:

  1. keeping track of my eating for the day
  2. planning to eat a snack from a food group where I did not eat enough (example: milk)
  3. keeping occupied during the evening with a diversionary activity (example: knitting, drawing, reading)

This approach seemed to work for me during the month.  I did not have any evenings where I lost control, although I did eat more than my planned snack on a couple of evenings.  Also, I knitted most evenings and finished a multi-coloured cowl I can wear on my winter walks outside.

I am going to continue to record my evening eating strategies in MyFitnessPal‘  (http://www.myfitnesspal.com/).  I’ll be sure and show you the results of my next ‘diversionary activity’ project!!!!

Best always, Alexandra
