Don't put food in your mouth at night.

THAT is about as base and simple as you can get. I LOVE that answer.

I would add this. Eat more FAT during the day and you wont be hungry at night. I am NOT kidding.

Try intermittent fasting. If you enjoy eating later in the day, do so, but make sure you stay within your calorie goal.
Consume whatever foods you prefer, whenever you prefer to consume them, while ensuring nutrient sufficiency and meeting caloric goals.

For one, try to do activities at night that take your mind off of food. Other options are to drink water, go to bed, or if its simple hunger try getting more protein and fiber in your diet.

Do you have to be up late for some reason? Agree with pythonis.

I keep a pack of no-fat smoked turkey hot dogs (Ball Park brand) on hand in the fridge. Each is only 45 kcals and mostly protein. Even cold, they're pretty tasty and that protein shot takes the edge off my hunger until bed-time. A non-fat yogurt is also a good substitute.

If you have trouble with restraint then just don't keep junk in the house. Make the only food available ones that need time to prep/cook. You're less likely to do that late at night.

Unless avocado make you violently sick, then one can go wrong with eating one.

Or if the calories of the avocado take you over your limit. Then the calories are just as wrong as from any other source.

Try brushing your teeth after dinner. For some reason, this helps me. Good Luck.

My hard time is afternoons. I try to get away from the kitchen and find things to do that aren't food related.

Increase your protein at dinner? And don't wait until it's bed time to brush your teeth. Do it earlier.

Here's one for the record books: have an entragastric balloon inserted into your stomach for six months. That's what I did and lost 25 kilos/50 lbs and keeping it off.

the purpose of the balloon is to make you feel full...all the time.

It's not especially bad to eat right before bed if you intaking the right things. A little cottage cheese or a casein protein shake right before bed can actually keep your metabolism higher as you sleep, as long as the intake is small. In fact a pre-bedtime snack is one of my favorite times of day.

Food does not increase metabolism. Eating before bed is no different than any other time of day. It comes down to personal preference.

Well after some research it would appear that there are almost no true scientific studies that I can find that debunk or support the theory that eating at night promotes a slow burn.

Regardless, eating before bed, is still, not necessarily a bad thing. It's what you intake and how that matters.

This is also one of my problem, late night eating because I work on night shift.

If eating that snack would put you over your calorie goal, try drinking a great big glass of water instead.

Another option- reduce your eating earlier in the day to allow yourself a snack before bed.
