Different strategies: Fill up on things like cucumbers, fruit, salad. Leave the kitchen by 9 pm. Get a milk frother to make what goes on top of a cappuccino. Pretend it is a fancy desert. Remove all tempations from the house. You can do it!

How bad is late night snacks? I'm a workaholic and can only eat late at night!

Healthy Eating: Look for some snacks you can take on the run! like apples, dried fruit, nuts, etc. These can be consumed at your desk, while talking on the phone and while driving. Eating just prior to sleeping can lead to increased weight gain. Your metabolism slows down while sleeping, and therefore, you pack on more pounds.

TMJ at Night: Tmj is really about alteration of the bite during sleep or nighttime teeth grinding or clenching. Tmj pain is really not about a problem in the joint, but usually of the muscles around the joints. See your dentist for an exam.

I can't fall asleep at night. Will taking a medication help?

Maybe: Before trying medication, you may want to check and be sure you are promoting sleep. Avoid caffeine late in the day. Go to sleep around the same time in a quiet dark comfortable place. Get regular exercise during the day, but not too close to bedtime. Don't eat heavy meals close to bedtime. Avoid excess alcohol. If you are doing these things, and still can't get to sleep, see your doctor.

Is it better to use cream at night than in the morning?

Dr. M. Christine Lee

Yes: Creams are more effective when applied at night because you have 8 hours for it to sit and penetrate. The skin becomes much drier during the winter and need to apply cream all over. Get even better penetration by wearing gloves and socks over heavy creams on the hands and feet.

Cataracts: Dear hummus10716, poor night vision can be a symptom of cataracts in older individuals, deficiency of vitamin a or zinc, or a condition called retinitis pigmentosa that occurs in people before the age of 30. It is a good idea to see your eye specialist as soon as possible, as many causes of night vision loss are treatable.
