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.
