    Although I'm pretty good at sticking to calorie counting my huuuuuuuugest downfall is binging at night, is anyone else the same??

    And would anyone pretty please have any suggestions they would like to share about how to curb the late night snacking??

    Hope you're all well fellow calorie counters :eek:

    Unfortunately if I'm completely honest I often replace one bad habit with another, so I pop out to the garden for a cigarette.

    Or distraction, when I'm hungry I challenge my fella to a Wii game, let my hamster out for a run round, go for a relaxing bath, tend to my fish tank, call my Mum or a friend... anything to take my mind off the fake hunger.

    I'm the same! Before I started calorie counting I got in to the habit of going to bed early and eating chic til I felt sick! Now I know that if I'm on my own then I'll eat so if I get the munchies I just sit with my family as I know they would say something!! :)

    Distraction sounds like a good idea :) I tend to use baths to stop me from eating at night!

    1500's still good! :) I wouldn't put yourself down for that!! Plus, a little of what you like does you good and I'm a big believer in the occassional binge, it always seems to get my metabolism going again! :D

    You sound so like me! I only ever binge if I'm by myself (and to the point where I feel very sick!) So I always make sure I'm around people! Best thing to do I reckon :)

    My own version. Cutting down on fat and lots of walking.
    I'm always hungry late at night and can't go to sleep on an empty stomach. I eat a couple of small cubes of flapjack and that gives me a fuller feeling.

    It's got lots of healthy oats in it. My mate lost about 4 stone eating flapjack in between meals instead of chocolate and crisps, etc.

    Thats what I was thinking.....flapjack is a no-no in my eyes LOL full of calorific sugar and syrup! there are loads of cals in a flapjack, some people do think they are healthy because of the oats but its kinda counteracted by all the sugar ;)

    My gosh I'm going to write on here right now because I'm so tempted to go into the kitchen and have a late night binge...

    Note to self: you will never be happy if you stay this weight... GO TO SLEEP... wake up knowing you're a stronger person!

    Night night everyone :) x
