Snacking at night

I've heard many times that you shouldn't snack in the evenings but I have the hardest time giving that up!  That's when my kids are in bed, the house is quiet, and I can actually enjoy a little treat in peace.  Do you cut yourself off from food at a certain time of the day?  When do you snack the most?

Evenings when I have been sitting around watching TV are my worst times. I try not to keep any easy snacks in the house. If I can't just grab it and sit back down, I am less likely to eat. 

I have been eating a lot of microwave popcorn so hopefully that is better than some other things I could snack on.

I like to snack on popcorn too.  I make air pop popcorn and I just love it.  Watermelon has been a big treat for me lately too.  I just can't get enough of it!

This is my worst problem. I find myself planning and preparing my night time snacks in advance so all I have to do is get up off the sofa and grab something.

It is a terrible habit I can't seem to break.
