A small amount of empty calories is okay, but most people eat far more than is healthy. It is important to limit empty calories to the amount that fits your calorie and nutrient needs. You can lower your intake by eating and drinking foods and beverages containing empty calories less often or by decreasing the amount you eat or drink.
Boost Weight Loss Results by: Eating more often, actually studies show that you could eat the same amount of calories but spread them out every 2 to 3 hours which stabilizes your blood sugar at a much lower level - consequently your insulin (AKA Fat Storage Hormone) does not kick into high gear, consequently you do not have the excess to store in fat cells like dumping on your system in just a few meals.
Smart Late Night Snacking for Better Sleep: Keeping it small (100 calories or less), having the last snack at-least an hour before retiring, avoid caffeine like the plague in the prior 8 to 12 hours, do have specific relaxing hot teas and avoid any foods that boost your metabolism such as spicy hot in the evening.
