If you're anything like I was a few months ago, you might have been in a rut. I had no idea where I was going when it came to fitness, and health. I know I loved to cook & learn new recipes; but portion control was a restraint I was lacking. Apparently so was the ability to ignore early morning cravings. I couldn't pry my hands off of the refrigerator door at 3am. During the day was fine, but it was late night that was posing the problem. When the topic of weight loss comes up, not eating after 7 is a common statement made by those hoping to lose some pounds. As unfortunate as it is, at 3 am; I am not necessarily coherent. And I feel like I am not able to process a common sense judgment such as leaving the refrigerator alone. In a search for a solution, I stumbled upon a post written by a guy who went through the same thing. And his solution? Write 'are you really hungry or just bored or thirsty?' on a piece of paper and tape it on the inside of the refrigerator. I did it and night one went well. The following nights did as well. I found myself waking up and grabbing water or an orange or some other piece of fruit. Which was better than the calorie-filled food I was searching for.
