Hi there, Your story sounds vaguely familiar.(Could it be mine?) I always struggled with night bingeing as well. My only help was to lay out my daily snacks before hand, and try to save what I could for the night. Sounds simple, I know, but it has really helped get that night time demon under control.
I wish you all the best on this new journey of yours. It also helps to get a few good friends on SP behind you. They can be a real kick in the pants.LOL
