I get curious so I often open it up to see what might be going on in there. I usually find that nothing is happening. The food is just sitting there chilling out. And then sometimes the food just looks….well…. it just looks like it simply wants to be eaten. So, I will grab something and eat it.
What I have found is that after allowing my curiosity to get the better of me it gets easier to open up the fridge multiple times in an evening to grab a little snack. Often these little snacks can equal a few hundred (at the least) or up to nearly a thousand calories.
So, this is clearly not a healthy curiosity. In addition to the amount of calories eaten while you sleep your body slows down making those late evening calories worse than if they were eaten earlier in the day.
This evening curiosity / habit is something that I tend to fall into on a semi regular basis. I have made a rather general resolution for this year, but I want to make one that is more specific and more easily measured.
This years measurable and definable resolution is to not eat anything after 8:00 at night, not matter how curious I may be about what is happening in the refrigerator or the cupboards.
Lets, see if I can stick to it. 🙂
