Kris said some very good points -- many people eat out of emotional need or boredom at night, rather than hunger.
I have found that if I eat well during the day (every 2-3 hrs, enough proteins) I can easily control myself by evenings. The days I hardly eat during the day, it catches up at night and I eat and eat. Make sure you are getting enough calories during the day.
The other thing I learnt (which sucks) is don't keep any junk food in the house. Only healthy alternatives. Fruits can relieve the sweet cravings. When I do want a candy bar or something, there is none to binge on.
Also, you can chew strong peppermint gum or suck on hard candy - that will take away any need to eat. Or brush your teeth - you won't feel like eating after that! :)

It's easy to say you're too tired, too stressed, too busy, too this or too that. Too bad. The only way you'll strip away the fat is to start by stripping away the excuses.
