Default Evening meltdowns

What are some effective ways to avoid overrating in the evening? I have a very busy morning in class, and always eat very light while I'm on the go. However my evening job as a chef can be very slow during the week, and the combination of being bored and having a plethora of free fried foods at my fingertips can be overwhelmingly tempting sometimes. I go get home around 11pm and don't have time to workout before bed... How do other people avoid breaking a days worth of being good on the evening?

First, maybe think about changing your thinking about "being good" and being bad. If you are eating lightly all day, you are probably hungry when you go to work, so its natural you'd be hungry. Make a plan for a full day's meals - planning out breakfast, lunch and dinner. You could even incorporate some of the fried food into your plan if you know you will eat it anyway.

Can you clean while you are at work to keep you busy? Or do leg lifts while you stand there?
It's about commitment, not motivation.

It would probably help if you had adequate meals throughout the day so that you are not ravenous in the evening. An evening snack would also help, too. Don't see your hunger as being bad. It is simply your body saying "Hey! I need food over here!"

I like the advice you've received. Maybe also try chewing gum and sipping on sparkling water? Sometimes I find that helpful.

First goal: under 180:
Second goal: 175 or below:
Third goal: 168 (no longer overweight):
Fourth goal: 160 or below:
Final goal: 145-155 (not sure if this will ever happen):
