I've had this problem for many years. It didn't take 14 (or 24, or 36) days to eliminate it. Personally, what helped me the most:
1. I still wanted to eat at night time, so I replaced junk foods with healthy foods ( as steel cut oats porridge. 2. I finally understood that it does matter what I eat through the whole day, starting with breakfast. 3. I saved calories/points so I can use them at night. 4. I still eat MacDonald's frozen yogurt, plain, quiet often, in the evening, if that's what I want to eat. 5. The more vegetables I eat during the day and also protein in each meal, the better I can handle the evening. 6. I realized that I want to eat at night NOT because I'm hungry, but as a reward of working hard all day. The reward was allways FOOD. I had to find other ways to reward myself.
Can you please share what works for you? Thank you
I'll celebrate 10 years of maintenance on July 2nd, 2014!
