11 late night snacks to avoid wrecking your progress.

Going to bed hungry when you’re trying to get fit is not a good plan. It will sabotage your progress and your sleep. If you’re feeling that you’re either going to go to bed hungry like a misbehaved child or run the risk of binging hardcore, opt for these late night snacks instead. Note that they are fat-heavy because fat helps you feel fuller longer and signals to your body no one is starving around here.
