Thank you for doing and sharing all the research. I totally agree, since most of my emotional eating is done because I want to change my mood and feel better. It just makes sense.

I've found a wonderful help for my fibromyalgia--D-Ribose powder. It seems to give me more energy and really eases my pain. I walked up the stairs the other day and realized that my legs did not hurt!!

Found this as I did my research project for today's challenge on the Here for Change - Quarterly Habit Focus Team and thought it worth sharing:

From the Spark article "Is Evening Eating Destroying Your Weight Loss Efforts"

The Role of Sleep
Consuming a large amount of food before bedtime can also result in indigestion and sleep problems, which can trigger you to eat more during the proceeding days. A growing body of research suggests a connection between obesity and lack of adequate sleep. Statistics show that overweight individuals sleep about 1.8 hours less a week than people of normal weight. Since the 1960's sleep duration for American adults has dropped by as much as two hours a night, while obesity has drastically increased.

Sleep is a regulator of two hormones that effect appetite, leptin and ghrelin. Leptin helps suppress food intake and stimulate energy expenditure, while ghrelin stimulates appetite, fat production, and body growth. When one is sleep deprived, the level of leptin drops and the level of ghrelin increases. The result is a drastic increase in hunger. One study reported a 24% increase in hunger, with excessive, uncontrollable cravings for calorie and carbohydrate packed foods such as cookies, candy and cake. It can all add up to a vicious cycle of late night binges, lack of adequate sleep, uncontrolled snacking, late night binges, and so on.
