I have found that eating fruit by itself tends to make me more hungry and causes problems with my sugar levels. However, If I add a protein with that fruit My sugar levels stay even and I can go longer between eating. One of my favorite snacks is an apple with a slice of american cheese.
If you struggle with after-dinner binge eating, which sabotages the great work you do at healthfully eating during the day, try eating a small amount of protein in the late afternoon. My secret: I eat a hard boiled egg or have a small amount of greek yogurt before I leave the office at the end of the day. This keeps me from nibbling during dinner prep, and keeps me fuller overall, which helps me control late night snacking.
