Nighttime eating is one of my biggest strugges and leaves me feeling "hung-over" the next day - sick, regretful, and despairing of ever changing. One thing I have come to realize is that the problem starts way before the evening. As the article pointed out, lack of sleep increases hunger, especially for simple carbohydrates. I am living proof of this. Also, I have noticed that if I eat protein for breakfast, and actually eat a balanced lunch a few hours after breakfast, this has more of an effect on evening eating than what I eat for dinner. I felt better, and less alone, after reading everyone's comments.
