Hi, I understand what you are going trough, sometimes I have insomnia and sleep until really late, also, I have really big cravings from time to time and THATS NORMAL, remember that this is a lifestyle change, don't go for the all or nothing mentality, that will only give you more cravings and you might end up having a BIG binge (my personal problem).
So, for the night hunger this is what usually works for me:
1. If I have dinner at 8 and then I go to sleep at 2 am, there are 6 hours in between! Of course you are going to be hungry, so:
-Have a small snack that includes protein every 3 - 4 hours: greek yogurt with half a banana, 1 whole wheat toast with a small piece of cheese, etc. You can add this calories to the next day calories range if you are going to sleep till late, if not, try to cut back 100- 200 cals during your day and eat them in this form during those late night hours.
2. About the cravings:
- As I said, they are natural, and only with some time you will lear to postpone them, try this:
If you want chocolate, eat it with a cup of fruit (like strawberries) and small portion of protein (like yogurt), that will fill you more and you won't have the sugar spike that comes after eating sweets (which will make you eat more sweets).
Hope this helps
