"good" all day...mess up at night?

I eat healthy throughout my morning & workday. Unfortunately almost everyday I blow it when I am done work by snacking, eating high calorie dinners. I do not keep junk food around the house, but Ill snack on "healthy" junk food like 100 calorie packs, sugar free treats, etc. Anyone have any suggestions or have the same problem?

I TOTALLY HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM......I try to eat a sensible dinner because I've been good all day and then I feel like I'm hungry an hour later and want a snack or two or three. Its really fustrating!

Make sure you're getting enough calories during the day. Everyone needs at least some healthy fats & fiber, too. If you're essentially 'starving' yourself during the day, it makes sense that you're famished by the end of the night.

OTOH, if that's not the case, you may want to try altering your meal times and/or spreading out your meals into more frequent, smaller 'meals.'

Hope this helps!

1:32 poster here, just realized there's another thread in the community a bit similar to your question, titled "How do I stop eating so much at night?" Just another thing to check out for more ideas...

or you could just suffer through the hunger pangs for a few nights until they go away. that worked for me. it was tough, and i showered, brushed my teeth, flossed for an hour, gave myself facials, cleaned out closets...just kept myself busy and NOT eating. after a few nights, the pangs were gone and my evenings are a breeze to deal with now. for my dinner, i usually have a yogurt and an apple and some veggies with hummus...keep it light but healthy.

I have the same problem. I have figured out that I want to reward myself for being 'good' all day, and sweets are my reward. Sometimes I try to make sure I have not so bad treats, like sugar free fat free chocolate pudding/fudgscicles, or diet hot chocolate or something. But sometimes it seems like that perpetuates the problem.
