Brief Answer:
Change the dinner habits

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.
The midnight food craving can be reduced by following these food habits for your dinner.
1) Have high protein diet as proteins need long time for digestion and absorption like nuts, lean poultry and fish etc.
2 Have more fibre as these stays in gut for longer time, like vegetables or fibre bars etc.
3)Reduce the intake of carbohydrates as sugars get absorbed very quickly.

If any further query kindly get back to us.
