Totally agree. I always plan to have a good snack at night and make sure it contains protein and ideally some fiber. For me I find an apple with peanut butter, just plain peanuts, or a greek yogurt with some fruit works well for me. I am also a big fan of multi-grain chips with a good black bean dip (heavy on the dip)...but try to limit that to once/week because of the sodium level.

I have also found that if I am getting 25-35g of fiber during the day I am less hungry at night. To me this is the other side of eating junk/fast food....no fiber to help you feel full.
