PM binging

Am I the only person who eats great and healthy during the day but as soon as I get home I want to eat everything in sight? I eat plenty of calories during the day (not too much but not too few either) but it seems like I can't control myself when I'm relaxing at home. UGHHH!
It feels like one step forward and two steps back.

You are definately not alone. I eat VERY well all day long, then I get home and I snack... then I snack... then I eat dinner.... then I snack.... then I snack.

I really have to finda a way to get around my house without taking a pit stop in the kitchen.

I think MANY of us are like that!!

I find that, out of habit, if I walk past the pantry, I stop and grab something out of it. This is a habit that I'm working to break. Sometimes I can go a few days w/o doing it at all. But, I tend to forget I'm trying to break the habit.

I used to think I was a stress eater, but I recently realized (via being stressed out) that I'm not actually a stress eater; I'm a boredom eater. When I have nothing left to do, I eat.

Try planning some activities and keep yourself busy. Or, try taping the pantry shut or putting a sign on it that says "no" or something like that.

Or, be sure you have yummy healthy snacks to munch on, like cut-up fruits and veggies, air-popped popcorn, etc.

Oh, you are SO not alone! It is pretty much the only thing standing in my way to getting to my goal weight.

I am doing great on my diet. I eat within my calorie limits and have lost really well, over 200 pounds. But I am having a terrible time making myself stop eating at night. During the day I can keep myself busy and just ignore the desire for food. But at night no matter what I do I end up eating.
So what I have done is make sure they are healthy snacks. Apple, salad, veggies, hummus on veggies, that sort of thing. And still stay within my calorie alotment for the day. I plan for it basically.
I know eventually I will have to get this under control but for now this is where I am.
I wish you all the best OP in overcoming.

my suggestion is only going to be applicable if you don't mind taking "suppliments".

I'll start off by saying that I am very cautious of what I take, I don't take any drugs or pharmecutical creations for weight loss (or much of anything). Whenever possible, I take a natural wholeistic approach to health care. I never take anything that affects my metabolism! but I have found some natural suppliments that have worked well with my "get healthy" goals and one of them has helped me a lot with evening eating ... have you heard of PGX? it is a natural fibre suppliment that when taken with water gives a very long lasting full feeling. both my husband and I have taken it in the evening to help with late-night nibble urges and it has helped dramatically!

I always suggest that ppl look up stuff and read about it, I'm sure if you google PGX you will find it.
