Try to find something to do that is incompatible with eating. Something you enjoy and look forward to doing. Change your routine up for a few days. Use a different door to come in, sit in a different chair or different room. Make a list of all the things you can do instead of eat. Try them one day at a time until you find an activity you like. It can be a hobby, pampering yourself, visit a friend, read a book. Habits are hard to break, so imagine yourself not being hungry, then delay eating. Save some calories for a special portioned snack just for that time, enjoy it them move on. You are not only doing this for yourself, but for all your loved ones. Hope some of this helps. emoticon

The choice is mine. I am in charge of me. Live healthy.

I also find myself wanting to eat in the evening. I read over the suggestions and will give them a try, especially trying to drink more water and get some veggies on hand.

It is difficult to stay focused. Must find another room besides the family room (next to the kitchen) to sit.

Late night eating is an issue for me too. I like and will try the suggestions offered.

Drink as much water as you can when you get these cravings. Brush your teeth. Have fruit or veggies, of course raw veggies are the best but if you need a sweet go for one piece of fruit. We have all been there and it is just a case of not caving into a craving - once you don't do it for a couple of nights you won't be so inclined to do it

I have better results with my weight loss if I do not eat after 7pm. The calories may be the same but my little fat cells seem to hold the calories and weight if I eat late. I made the commitment to follow the SP food plan and it does seem to be working. I think it helps me to eat the right amounts of fats and protein each day.

Keep trying suggestions until you find what works for you.

I exercise in the evening, usually for more than an hour. It's hard to eat while you exercise, so it helps keep the evening food intake down.
Good luck,
Laurie

You could save some of your calories during the day through portion control then have a fruit snack in the evening. Food at night does not act any differently than food at 2:00. Track and manage your calories.

There have been times when I felt like eating something later in the evening, I then go to bed.

I have the same problem in the evenings. I am trying to have one Belvita bar (58 calories) at about 8 pm. I keep visualizing what the weight loss will look like on me!

Unfortunately excercising make me feel hungry. I don't know if it's scientific fact but it's how I feel. I try to have a protein shake when I am done working out. It usually does the trick - are you getting enough protein?

Sometimes I prepare my plate as usual and then take 1/2 off the plate and put it away. I will then eat slow, chewing well so that I will satisfy both my chewing needs as well as allow the food to reach my stomach, I find I feel satisfied when I've finished. Full but not stuffed.

It sounds like you have to decide to put on the brakes and allow yourself just half portions of whatever it is you are eating. You may be addicted to some of the ingredients in the foods you choose. Can't you change the recipes to lower the calorie count in how you prepare the food? We all go through this initial discovery and then work on modifications from there. You can do it.

I am exercising almost every day, but seem to have trouble eating less than 2500-2800 calories. I seem to want to snack late in the evening. Does anyone have any suggestions?
