My response may not sound very exciting or what people wish to hear, but I think it is worth mentioning.

I used to snack most nights, mainly salted peanuts with beer. Over years, I cut down on the beers but I was still having late-night snacks.

However, recently after listening to Michael Mosley's podcast on BBC podcast, "Just One Thing", (link below), I consciously decided to give it a go. So after my evening meal normally between 6 pm and 7 pm, I have nothing else except water, normally hot water as Some Like it Hot, not to mention that the tap water here is absolutely fabulous.

My next meal would be the breakfast next morning.

The benefits I have seen in just over two months:
I have now lost nearly half a stone by implementing just this one change and I feel a lot more active all day. Also, I sleep better and get less vivid dreams.

Some Like it Hot: 1959: Great film, Tony Curtis, Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon...

I was brought up to avoid cheese as it would give me nightmares, coffee because it would keep me awake and alcohol because it would make me hyper-active. It's possible my parents didn't like to see me enjoying myself lol.
