Having issues not eating past 6pm!

    According to science, our body doesn't know whether it's 6PM, midnight, 10AM or 4PM when we eat. It simply sends us signals that it wants food--either from habit, from emotional eating cues or from hunger. And, again according to scientific research, our bodies do not store what we eat int he evenings as fat, no matter what time of the night we eat it. (It simply stores whatever calories we consume above what we need.)

So feed yourself healthy food when you are hungry, no matter what time of day that occurs.

I took this to heart on a trial basis about 7 months ago. I stopped watching the clock to know when I should eat and just paid attention to hunger signals. It was very, very hard at first, both to overcome my fear about eating at night and to overcome my inability to distinguish hunger from emotional eating/habits But I've lost more than 30 pounds so far and none of it has come back. In addition, I now sleep without waking up because my stomach is growling from hunger, and I no longer overeat in the mornings.

Perhaps you could try this concept for yourself?

Whatever, you choose, best of success to you.

    I know what you mean. Tea might help.
Or if this is a new habit, maybe you can ease into it; have a small evening snack, then gradually move it (either earlier or later, whichever works) or make it smaller until it is phased out and your tummy grumblers are gone.
I eliminated my bedtime snack by going to bed a half hour earlier for a little while and having a cup of tea half way between supper and bedtime.
Good luck!
