I have this issue, too! I realized it was mainly because I hang around in my kitchen eating/sit-in area and just mindlessly grab something to snack while watching tv. The only true remedy I could find was leaving and staying in another room with a glass of water.

For everyone's edification, an ENDOCRINOLIGIST would be the doctor to see as he/she specializes in metabolic issues which can range from metabolic syndrome, diabetic care, Thyroid issues, being overweight. Some offices even have reigerstered dieticians on site.

I seem to do good during the day, but working evenings, and no lunch breaks at work, I eat way too much when I get home which is around 11:30pm. When I track my calories, I seem to be eating around 3700 calories per day. Does anyone have any suggestions?

grab a glass of water, instead, perhaps.
stay out of kitchen, except when necessary.
Choose wisely, and make it part of your meal plan

It definitely is important to find out if you really ARE hungry, or if by just being in the kitchen makes you think you are so you reach for something to eat. Try staying out of the kitchen except for at meal times and if you find yourself wandering there, get something that can distract you until the feeling passes.

A couple of things have helped me....

I have made a goal (not yet fully met) to eat 10 fruits & veggies every day. When I do, a funny thing started happening w/ my cravings. They became less and less. (Check out Dr. Joel Fuhrman's book, "Eat to Live.")

2nd - sometimes keeping busy and distracted keeps me from looking for snacks. Certain things can "trigger" a craving.

3rd - I will occasionally pull back from food in general. ie. I will use I.F. to regain perspective on food as fuel.

All I know is that it is working for me. Good luck w/ your journey to health and fitness!

Have you asked yourself if you are physically hungry or eating for emotional reasons?

At first, it was hard to answer the question, but I have gotten better at figuring out when I eat for emotional reasons.

Good Luck!
