Lizzy, I read of a plan that may help you with your evening binges. Because of the rules, I cannot give you a link but can give you the gist of it. Every other day, three days a week, are carb deplete days; on alternate days, carb up three days a week; then one day per week is a "cheat" day. On the carb deplete days, you eat very low carb, no fruit, no high impact carbs. On the carb up days, you eat one fruit and one starchy vegetable or grain. Choose one day each week to be your "free" day. On that day you can eat a moderate amount of whatever you want. That's when you treat yourself to a dessert and/or your favorite high carb meal. I find with this program, I am more in control. I don't feel deprived. I can get through ONE day without my favorite foods, knowing that the next day I can have a serving and that in a few days I can have a meal or dessert that I otherwise would have to avoid. Bye-bye cravings!
