How to Combat a Middle-of-the-Night Sweet Tooth

Weigh In: How to Combat a Midnight Sweet Tooth?

If you're a runner, or have ever trained for a marathon, maybe you can offer some suggestions for FitSugar reader lroselei.

I'm a runner and am in pre-training to run a marathon. Just building my base runs. So all is good, however TWICE ALREADY I'VE GOTTEN UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT AND EATEN SWEET THINGS! I don't know what's going on. I am eating complex carbs and veggies and protein, lots during the day, and then it's like the sweet zombie comes alive after I start sleeping. LOL. I've been told to watch out about sugar intake and weight gain. My pants have actually started feeling looser and falling off a bit. I'm not worried so much about weight gain as I am about building a bad midnight cookie habit. Helpful ideas wanted, please. I feel like I'm sleepwalking when it happens! LOL.

If you have a quick question you need an answer to, post it here. The FitSugar Community is sure to offer you helpful tips and insightful advice.
