Hey FatSecret, I think a lot of us suffer from the late-night munchies for whatever reason.

Anyone have ideas for filling snacks to keep you full throughout the night?

Try hardboiled eggs.
Avoiding the things that raise blood insulin and leptin levels works. Really!

I find useful the following:
rice crackers with peanut butter
rice cracker with cottage cheese
greek yogurt with berries and honey

They all have about 150 kcal and are quite filling

Do NOT eat anything besides water 90 minutes before you go to sleep.

You are hungry because you didn't get all the calories you needed for the day, if you are losing weight, thats not a bad thing, but you can't be that hungry that you need to eat a cow. You should be hungry but not that much.

If you don't care about HGH production like I do, forget about the first thing I told you and eat whatever you want: eggs are a good option. Something with good fats before you go to bed is always better that something full of sugar.

Eat roasted chickpeas. They are healthy and even a small amount is quite filling. I get full just by eating around 20 grams of those, depending on how hungry I am. If you don't get them, you can use the recipe called "Sneaky Chef "Rattle" Snacks" from the following page:

And best of all, your query is also answered there.

I floss and brush my teeth for a late night snack, LOL!

I sleep so much better since I don't overeat in the evenings.

If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.

Why are you concerned about HGH as it relates to late eating?
