That was my biggest problems. Hunks of cheese, doritos, etc. I now come home and make the dinner salads. I snack on the lettuce and garbanzo beans. That fills the void. We also try to eat earlier. We used to eat at 6:15 - 6:30PM. No it's more like 5:45 PM.

I agree, but the major problem is that you need to occupy your time. It is usually doing nothing, watching TV, playing on the computer etc that leads to mindless munching.

I need to find a hobby. Until then I use coffee. I love it and it usually curbs my hunger.

Remove the chips and junk from the house. But honestly, you should have a meal plan. This isn't something you dream up, it is something you form over time. Analyze your eating patterns and shift calories appropriately. I'm a night eater, so I simply shifted the majority of my daily calories to after work. I usually eat nothing for breakfast, a "normal" lunch, then a light meal when I get home from work (that is planned, reasonably healthy) ... that light meal controls a lot of free range eating. Then when I get hungry again, I have my largest meal of the day. This has served me well. I didn't figure this out over night though.

Try not to keep the foods you tend to cheat with in the house.

It is very hard, because you are ready to "relax" and it takes work not to eat everything in sight. I try to have a healthy snack and keep out of the kitchen.

This is a major problem for me, but I've tried to have a late snack before I leave work too.

I have the same issue. When the 5:00 whistle blows and I get home I start to graze. But, now I have a late snack at work(oatmeal, South Beach Bar, or something filling), a large glass of water(2cups), and if I don't have to make dinner right away I go do something else AWAY from the kitchen.

Good luck!

Why is it I always kill my diet when I get home from work. I do so good during the day, fruits, veg, etc and when I get home at 5pm it potato chips, etc. So mad at myself. Anyone got any ideas?
