Hi everyone,
I'm attempting to keep my daily calorie intake to around 1600 which I've found is quite acheivable. One issue I have is about a 1/2 hour after dinner (8pm) I get the munchies or what you may call a sugar craving. I feel that if I can overcome these, I'll be in a lot better shape.

Any recommendations?

Hot tea, herbal or decaf. You can add a little honey or sugar if you need to sweeten it up. The tea is hydrating, stomach settling, and filling. Worked for me when I was losing aggressively, and it continues to be my go-to late night food alternative.

If you absolutely must eat food, try plain yogurt with honey or berries.

I agree with the tea suggestion, I often accompany my tea with a rice cracker with peanut butter (unsweetened) it helps a lot and it is filling

I have a snack every evening - I just make sure the calories fit into my day.

Acv
1-2 tbsp a day for two weeks got rid of my gall stones. The ACV stimulates bile production which aids in digestion and helps cleanse the gall bladder and liver. Don't know about weight loss.
