I have an evening snack every night and if I'm still hungry I will have a cup of tea !

After eight o'clock, brush your teeth and use mouth wash. That way, you won't be tempted to eat any more.

Just lately I have not been sleeping well and I feel very hungry and twice now I have either had half of my breakfast in the early morning hours or have had my whole breakfast...leaving me with having to eat my lunch at 10:30am or something ridiculous like that.
I find it peculiar because I had been doing so well and now this hunger thing in the wee hours of the night!
I hope it passes. Good topic!

same here. After a few weeks I broke the bad habit I had for many years.
I eat /finish at 7:30, stay on a schedule. Eat a lot of vegetables that are filling, and I don't snack anymore.

I, too, got over the issue of night time comfort snacking by going to bed early. It disappeared after a month, and now even if I stay up very late, I don't get any cravings.

What's your calorie range? If you'd share your food trackers, perhaps you can post over in Diet & Nutrition and see if the folks there can give you some suggestions on what you can do. If you're hungry at night, you may not be eating the right things to keep you full, you may not be eating enough overall, or your snacks may not be keeping you full.

What works for me is going to bed earlier, on nights I seem not tired I go to bed anyways and read something. You can also write, like write about your day or write someone a letter. No T.V., too many food commercials at night aimed to get late nighters to go buy, fast food after fast food commercial.

Hi all

I've been trying to get down to a good weight for the past several months. I have found I do well during the day, but at night I get really hungry. I don't starve myself at all. It is simply a craving I get during the late evenings. I have maintained by not giving in...(not easy) does anyone else deal with this?
