When you feel like you need something salty or sweet in the afternoon, it's because you're most likely to fall off the healthy-eating bandwagon at around 4.12pm.
Yes. 4.12pm is what this recent British survey by OnePoll reported. They surveyed 1,000 men and women about their diet habits. The results were that 45 percent of them said afternoon snacking was the main way in which they'd broken their New Year's diet resolutions.
When researchers asked the participants to select a specific time between 4pm and 11pm as to when was their ultimate downfall, the average time chosen was 4.12pm.
"That makes sense," says Lisa Young, Ph.D., R.D., author of The Portion Teller Plan. "The afternoon is when your blood-sugar levels may drop because it's been a while since you've eaten."
Fortunately, there are two suggested ways you can curb snack cravings. First, you can eat a light 150-200 calorie snack anywhere from 3-4pm so that you're not starving when the dieting hour strikes. Young recommends snacks that have both fiber and protein, such as apple slices and peanut butter, or a cup or vegetable soup, because that combination keeps you fuller for longer.
The other option is exercising after work. "When you know you're about to do something positive, like getting on the treadmill after work, you may find it easier to stick to that mindset earlier and resist the chips," says Young. Even if it's a quick workout, it'll help.
