Does the TV have to be on at all ? do you read, perhaps that will be a better distraction, go have a glass of water instead of food, go to bed earlier to avoid the food impulses. Go for a walk, go work in your garden. Just be aware of what you are doing, I used to find sometimes I was eating and barely remembered going to get something from the kitchen, it was just a bad habit. Remember, you are not alone, rather than eat, go to this website and read an article related to your concerns. For example, I have been dying for a hamburger for about 2 months, so today I read the article regarding calories and fat in fast food burgers, it put me right off of even thinking of it (AT LEAST FOR A WHILE ANYWAY, but perhaps that's all I needed for now) .................... ............ You are worth it, and
Oh, hey, I think most of us do. Like Durangoreddog said, stock up on healthy things and go ahead and eat. If you haven't tried frozen berries, you'll have to. I microwave to get the crunchy frozen out. Sprinkle with whatever sweetner (if you need to), and it tastes like cobbler!!!
i have the same problem at 8 pm, stomach rumbles like crazy but we eat dinner at 3 or 4. hubby only eats at dinner than snacks until 8. so then i am hungry from watching him. i make a pizza for 165 cal. 6 inch corn shell, 1T. of sauce and 1 slice of swiss. i have one every evening.

You are not alone. Habits are vicious little creatures that rip our good intentions to shreds. Just keep Sparkin'!
I do everything right until 8:00 pm. Portions are correct, choices are good, caloric intake for each meal is great and then evening comes. EVERYTHING falls apart. And, I try to keep my hands busy doing knitting, crossword puzzles, game boy and still I wonder out into the kitchen for something to munch.
Several weeks ago I would have a cup of tea and a low cal bar. That worked for a while but soon became disenchanted with the same ole thing. I really think it's the TV with all the commercials of food in the evening and I don't know how to stop watching the commercials. (I know where the power botton is to turn it off). I have been muting it and exercising during the commercials but still I have visions of snacks in my head.
