    Night-time Eating

    Do you eat late into the night? According to HIF nutrition expert Susie Burrell, "Of all the dietary issues that present in practice, I find it of interest that ‘night eating’, one of the most significant diet derailers, is also one of the least talked about.  I’m not talking about getting out of bed at 2am and searching the cupboard for sweet foods, I'm talking about the nightly habit of sitting down after a meal and completely overindulging in high calorie snacks to end the day. Not only does this nasty habit make it almost impossible to lose weight, but what begins as a small treat to finish off the day’s eating often ends up as an entire packet of biscuits, or block of chocolate on too regular an occasion." In this article, Susie offers her advice on how to identify a night eating problem and explains how we can take control of it.

    The Christmas party season is over and for most of us that means it's back to being health conscious; but never fear - we have a treat for you that will help ease you back into it whilst still holding on to a little chocolatey goodness. According to HIF foodie Helen from ScrummyLane.com, "You'll love these squidgy and super chocolaty chocolate orange bars. These taste like a gooey brownie, but are actually a healthy blend of just five raw ingredients - cashews, dates, sultanas, cocoa and an orange. You would never in a zillion years guess that there is NO refined sugar, chocolate, butter or oil in them. Just pure goodness. And they are even gluten free. A snack that you don't need to feel any guilt about."
