Debunking the Diet - A new series by Luna

I got a present in my email today. It was a link to this video:

I love it for a number of reasons including the fact that there is lots of science showing that it doesn't matter what time you eat your calories but how many you eat. That means that this series might not be as full of stupid and mediocre dieting advice as a lot of them are.

Plus I thought it was entertaining.

As for myself, I have found times when I was snacking uncontrollably at night. Sometimes it was because I wasn't eating enough during the day. But mostly it was because I was mistaking other feelings for hunger.

That said, I generally find myself slightly hungry right before bedtime and, if I don't eat, I can't sleep because it's distracting. So now I just plan for it.

Usually I have protein hot chocolate. 60 calories, 15 g of protein and, hey, it's hot chocolate! It always fills me up and helps me sleep. I'm drinking some now.
