I can relate. I work full time and then study and work on homework late into the night. It sounds like you may need to have a structured snack or mini meal mid evening. I try to measure out snacks on the weekend for the week ahead, but I don't always get it done. I have also found that a glass of milk or a small smoothie goes a long way to stopping my mindless snacking. Sometimes just chewing a piece of gum works, but I really have to be cognizant of what I am doing for that to work.

Good luck!

I'm just finishing my first year in a master's program and haven't figured out yet how to adjust (healthily!) to my new routine. I get my best writing done late at night -- I usually get home at around 5pm, and study till about 2am. My problem: I eat totally responsibly from 8am - 6pm, but after dinner, I'm still awake working for hours, and all bets are off! That's when the beer and snack foods become a problem.

Has anyone dealt with this problem successfully? I'd love to hear your insights.

I'm thinking maybe I just need to shift my whole schedule forward, and schedule another proper meal around 9 or 10pm, so I'm not just grazing for that whole 6-8 hour span of studying in the evening.
