    Hmmmm what I've started doing to help with late night snacking:

    Eat majority of my calories earlier in the day. I've been having a huge lunch with lots of protein.
    I have a late afternoon snack (4pm) blueberries and greek yoghurt before I head home at 5pm.

    I've been chugging a large bottle of water right before dinner so I feel full and eat less.

    After dinner I've opted for a pepperment tea instead of normal tea and a snack

    Feeling like I could do some serious snacking tonight. I'm going to report for the day and hope this keeps me out of the kitchen.

    I do this, too. It is almost like peer pressure. And my husband is a whopping 165 lbs - so he has the room for extra calories. Not me!!

    Anyone experiencing this negative side effect of this Challenge?

    So my new problem is that if I know I'm going to break and have a late snack, I seriously go whole hog and eat the entire pantry!!!

    So yesterday I was still hungry and I ate the last serving of the plantain chips.
    Well, I already blew my LNS, so why not eat the homemade peach ice cream that I haven't been able to fit into my daily calories since the first day I made the ice cream.
    Well, now I want something salty...

    And the spiral continues...

    Oy!

    @huango

    You sound like me. Many people here say to leave yourself enough calories at the end of the day to accommodate your treat. I can't do that. It would lead me to want more.

    I had to give up my sweets. Cold turkey. Day one on mfp. I don't regret that decision at all. It's kept from overloading on stuff.
