  • I just to eat a lot in the evenings..now I try to stop eating after 6.00. Instead I drink water or tea to distract myself ;)
  • i have the same problem too, i pack my healthy breakfast, lunch, snacks and workout at least 4 to 5 days a week but when i get home and eat dinner i find i can't keep my elbow from making my mouth fall open. my biggest problem is my lifelong battle with my overactive sweet tooth that can keep me in out of the kitchen until i go to bed. my new goal is to allow myself that one snack then no more until the next night.
  • How did this writer sneak into my house and watch me??? The stupid thing is, I KNOW this is my problem but I fall into the trap night after night. I printed the list of tips and plan to hang it in my kitchen where I will see it every evening! It's nice to know I'm not alone in these bad habits, anyway...
  • This is so me when i see it this morning i knew i MUST read i can do GREAT all day but mine is more so RIGHT before bed i can just Beinge for NO reason AHHHH i hate that !
  • I saw myself in this article. I live alone and so often read and/or watch TV while I eat. Also, I often have papers to grade (I'm a teacher) in the evening and it seems I use eating as a distraction from grading.

    This article is all about me. This is exactly what I do. I stay on track all day, even go to gym and then in the evening I just eat anything I can find - mainly bread.
  • well...you got me, i do so good through out the diet but i think my diet and exercise is negated when i eat an entire pizza

    You are talking to me. Many days I skip either breakfast or lunch. I honestly don't need to eat during those times but I enjoy eating with my family and friends in the evening. I am truly a social eater at home and outside the home and these activities usually happen in the evening. I eat when I come home and while I am preparing dinner for the Kids. I know I am doing it but when you are in the moment you are enjoying every second of it. Only when it is over you regret the intake of cookie and the piece of cheese with crackers plus other snacks. Thanks for the reminder, I needed it.
  • This sounds like me. I can go all day being good then evening comes and i turn into a food addict. Finding sparkpeople may be the answer to my prayers.
  • I am DEFINITELY a night-time binge victim. I used to find myself getting home from work around 6pm and gorging on snacks before even getting around to cooking a sensible dinner. I found that one simple step helped me out with this problem -- having a 100-200 calorie snack at work around 4pm. It keeps the hunger away long enough that I make smart dinner decisions and smart decisions the rest of the evening.
  • Just what I was looking for tonight
    Great article!

  • Wow! I am so glad I found this article. I am not alone! I find if I go to bed and read by 8:30 or 9:00 I do OK. Its just when I stay up late watching TV, I get super hungry!
  • Great Artical!
    I work Retail and I dont have a set schedual. Its REAL hard not to eat when i come home. or get a real sleep schedual...we will see!
  • It's nice to know that I am not the only one who does this! Nighttime eating is my HUGEST problem! I'd be a skinny minny if it weren't for my night eating!! Great article, I hope that I will actually apply it.
