Hi Andi. I know what you mean, it is so hard not to have "a little something" during tv time, it has been one of the most difficult issues I faced. Not to mention my older kids having a snack at night, and having to see them eat but me not eat is pretty hard sometimes. I have disciplined myself to eat dinner and then nothing more past 8 pm, the only exception would be a light yogurt, or a couple handfuls of Fiber One (yukky at first but at least it crunches when you eat it). Now I don't usually have anything at all past dinner except water and/or a no cal water flavorer (my favorite is Diet Snapple Peach, the little packets are easy to carry in my purse and mix in the water well). The drink fills me up and helps alot. My husband is a Southampton lad, and so his eating habits are not very conducive to weight loss. Last night I had some turkey and he had sandwiches with butter and picalilly...that British food is tasty but oh so full of calories and fat...good luck!!!

I guess if I put the dog's food up at 7:00, I can do the same for mine!

I set a time after which I won't eat. It is not easy at first and you have to be good at saying no to yourself! Now it is much easier. I find it easier to sleep when I am not overfull from snacking.

The other thing you could do is go to bed earlier. The tireder you are the more likely you are to have less resistance and give in.

I also cut out beer/wine except on special occasions as that was encouraging me to snack!

emoticon I was hoping that anything that I had to eat after 9pm did not count. I love to watch tv and snack. I guess when I have met my quota for the day, I just had better go to bed.

Lord, bless my diet buddies and help me met my 2014 weight goals of 60 pounds.

This is also a big problem for me. My strategy is to snack on something healthy and low-calorie instead of going for the junk snacks, but ideally I would like to avoid snacking altogether at night. emoticon

Hi Andi,

Frist of all I want to say good luck to you and I know that is the hardest thing you can do is to lose weight. That's a hard one to ask I would eat dinner early and get the muchies during the 9:00pm hour best thing you can do is eat your snack right after dinner and hopefully you stay full for the night or keep busy you do not think about food. I hope that help you emoticon

Hi everyone,
my name is Andi. I am a male, based in the UK. Been having issues with my weight and have put about a stone on in 3 months due to poor diet and no exercise so my goal is to get back to what I was (just under 11 stone) not 12 plus!

I would like to hear from other people (males or females) about any tips on stopping the late night eating. I do so well in the day, and then when the evening comes I spoil it by binging on crap food like takeaways / crisps etc.

I never used to do this. Its since moving to a new city and working from home, plus I got lazy!

Any tips on how to overcome the cravings would be amazing :)

Andi emoticon
