01) Nonfat Greek Yogurt
Here is a great thing to eat before bed. A half cup of greek yogurt topped with cinnamon will satisfy you. This product contains 100 to 150 calories. Greek Yogurt has satisfying protein and relaxing powers of tryptophan. They yummy stack will help you sleep throughout the night.

So, the next time you want a late night snack. Think Greek. Besides the good taste,
you will sleep better and Creek Yogurt will satisfy your weight loss goals.
02) Low-Fat Cottage Cheese
Cottage Cheese is a great bedtime snack. It tastes great and is slow digesting. Also, because it contains whey protein and amino acid tryptophan. That will leave you satisfied and you will get a great night sleep.
Cottage Cheese is low in calories. Even though it is low in calorie, it’s high in protein and calcium. So eating it is very beneficial for weight loss. Just one cup of low-fat cottage cheese has about 160 calories, 2 grams of fat, 6 grams of carbohydrate, 28 grams of protein and has 14% of the daily value of calcium.
Studies have shown that the high intake of protein during weight loss, has an advantage for weight loss and keeping lean mass.
You can eat Cottage Cheese anytime of the day and get all the protein your body needs. So why not eat it for a night time snack?
03) Baby Carrots
Baby Carrots will help make you feel full and you will wake up feeling fresh and alive without any calories added to your weight loss plan. It only takes 4 or 5 to fill you up.
Baby carrots would be the ideal snack before bed.
So next time you go shopping, throw some baby carrots in your cart.
04) Strawberry Shake
Don’t reach for that yogurt. Get to know kefir. It’s like a drinkable yogurt. Just like yogurt, it contains lactase, an enzyme that breaks down lactose. You will wake up with a slimmer stomach. Besides that, it tastes great and will satisfy you before bed.
Try making your homemade shakes. That is, it allows you to maintain control over the ingredients you use and the number of calories in your drink.
Drink a low-calorie shakes as a meal or snack replacement. This is a proven strategy for long-term weight loss.
Yes, Cereal. But I’m not talking about the sugar kind either. All that sugar might keep you up later. I’m talking about the whole-grain kind. I would choose some oatmeal or corn flakes. Something along that line. Oh yeah, add a little milk for extra tryptophan and protein.
Look at the serving size. Try and stick to one or two servings size. Also, the milk. Don’t just use any kind of milk. Try and go with 1% or skim milk.
Stick with some of these kinds of cereal. Shredded Wheat, Bran Flakes, and whole grain cereals. These will help you with your weight loss goal and they are a great snack to eat before bed.
