Save your evening snack until bedtime. Chick peas, a glass of milk or nuts would work.

Funny, I just read and article on this on the SBD site. Dr. A. says studies have shown that there is no connection between late eating and weight gain. He says its fine to snack at night as long as you keep to the allowed daily portions. Plus if you snack on healthy things, like Ruth suggested, you'll probably be less likely to binge on the bad stuff.
