Losing weight is definitely hard, especially when you keep craving for something to eat at night. We all know that consuming food before bedtime is certainly not a good idea when you’re trying to shed off some pounds as you won’t be able to burn the calories anymore.
Luckily, we don’t have to starve ourselves at nighttime when we get a little hungry. Here are nine foods that are safe to eat even at night.
Scientists from Harvard revealed that hunger could cause trouble for sleep as much as overeating. Never go to bed hungry. Instead, you can munch on a couple of slices of cheese to satisfy the taste receptors.

A boiled egg is a filling night snack without having to worry about the calories.
Green vegetables contain the kind of carbs that will keep you full until the morning. You can eat like a vegetable salad when you’re hungry at night, and you don’t have to feel guilty about it.

If you’re craving for something sweet, this dish is a perfect choice. You can add a handful of raisins as well. This night snack will decrease the level of orexin that makes you get up to eat so that you won’t be looking for donuts and ice creams anymore.
8. A glass of cherry juice
A glass of natural cherry juice has a positive influence on the quality of sleep, making it deeper and longer.
