This seems to be a huge problem for me! Since joining this team, I have made some changes and am controlling it better,
1. I eat a larger lunch that has some staying power. I increased my protein and added in some fresh veggies/fruit. My need to an afternoon snack has diminished greatly so I am "saving" those calories for later. this way, night time snacking does not put me over my calorie limit for the day.
2. I created an emergency kit for those days when I don't have calories left to snack at night. It includes hand-written notes to myself that include reminders and inspirational quotes. It has hard candy and gum.
3. If the first 2 don't work and I give in to the craving, I don't beat myself up about it. I keep it portion controlled and healthy.
It's not perfect, but it's an improvement for me. I remind myself of how far I've come and how much I've changed in the last 2 years. Maybe one day I'll totally overcome my night time cravings, but until then, I just try to improve and do my best.
