My dietician encourages me to have a bar if I am hungry. Maybe half a bar would help? Night time is the worst for me too. One other suggestion from my dietician is to be sure you eat food that has a kick to it..like spicy. We register more fulfilling taste in our mouth when food is spicy. Maybe adding hot sauce or nibbling on pieces of canned jalapenos (in the Mexican aisle) while you eat your dinner will help...
