Well I'm not the authority on this...I'm trying to stop my own bingeing...but a good place to start is with your feelings. If you can hold off on your night eating long enough to get some uncomfortable feelings and then follow them. It shouldn't take very long if this is an important routine for you. I have a little conversation with myself sometimes. I feel a part of myself get anxious or pissed or sad and I talk to that part. A good question is Why do you want to eat? and then try to stay quiet and listen for an answer. Be nice to this part of yourself because ultimately this part is trying to help you and bring something good to you. Always say thank you and be loving then ask if you get...insert the first anwer here....what do you want from that that is even more important? With each answer keep asking again and always accecpt the answer and thank yourself for wanting these things for you.
A book that has helped guide me in this process is "Core Transformation" a very easy quick read. The author is Connierae something...i forget. you can look it up.
Also talking honestly to your primary care doctor or a therapist can be really helpful. Not an overnight cure but good for getting closer to the answers you're looking for.
