Eat Regularly: By Regularly, I mean eat every few hours. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner. If you’d like snacks in between that's perfect. Make sure you eat at the same times everyday, that way your body knows your eating routine and patterns.

as the same as breakfast make sure you have protein at each meal that way you stabilize your blood sugar.

Here's some great tips to do before they hit.
-Less TV. Watching TV makes you get the snackies! instead (This Brings me to the next step)
-Exercise something relaxing, a Yoga session is perfect. This will also get you relaxed and ready for bed, skipping the cravings all together.

Strawberry Chocolate Tea By the Republic of tea or Any flavored tea of your choice. Something preferably that does not need sweetened and I’ve found that the strawberry chocolate doesn’t need to be.
Frozen Grapes. If I’m craving something sweet or even ice cream this is what i’ll have.
Almonds for that salty kick. plus its a protein
1 square of 70% Dark Chocolate - For my chocolate cravings!
Cherries- I just learned this about a month ago and its amazing but Cherries are one of the few foods that naturally contain melatonin. So Bonus this will help you go to sleep.
If I feel that I really need something more substantial I go for a smoothie or greek yogurt. usually its always Vanilla Greek Yogurt with cherries on top.

I really hope these tips help you ladies out. If you have anymore questions let me know.
