I like dinner foods. So I tend to eat very light all day long. When I get home, I eat like I don't have control in the evening. I was wondering why I couldn't lose weight since I don't eat a lot during the day. This article makes a lot of since.
This has been my Waterloo over and over again. It is very very difficult not to have the odd bowlful (small) of nuts with a dringk in the evening when there are friends over and we are socializing or playing gin-rami. I cannot change the whole of my life, I need to keep some perspective about this dieting business. 1200-1300 calories will not do it for me unless I kill myself on the treadmill or do 45 minutes a day cardio. Any suggestions out there?
This is a great article for me. I am always saying "I live to snack" that's my problem. I need to get back in the habit of saving calorie space for one evening snack and quitting there. I like working out at 8:30 in the evening because I come home, take a shower and go to bed instead of parking in front of the TV with food.

This is just the article for me!!! Glad to know I'm not alone
I want to eat at night because when I have dinner between 6 and 6:30, i am hungry again by 10! This article is good because it encourages me to accept that I will eat something so I should plan for it and choose a healthy snack that will fit into my nutrition plan--rather than just going to the freezer for the ice cream. Also, if I want to eat ice cream, plan for that by keeping calories in reserve.

Late night snacking is my most common downfall. I'm getting better but still have slips. I need all the help I can get for this problem.
Great article, I eat myself to sleep I printed it so i could read it at night.

I am one of those people that has a hard time leaving dinner left-overs alone. This article was really helpful and made me re-examine why I do that, and I really liked the list of alternate things to do. Definitely worth re-reading.
Was just looking for something like this - I haven't been able to figure out why I am so hungry at night when I eat a good sized dinner. I do eat breakfast and lunch, but maybe not enough. Lots of good tips here for me to try!

I realize that I am a nightime eater, and after reading this article, I know that this has been one of the reasons I struggle with weight.
I got desperate trying to figure out if I am a nite time binger. turns out most of my calories are taken in after 5pm! I get really hungry at nite b/c I'm not eating a big enough breakfast and lunch. I need to develop a routine for my eating habits each day. good article!
