Nighttime is when I crave the things that are the least healthy for my body. It's when I want potato chips, nachos, and deep-fried cheesy things. I suspect this is because nighttime is when I feel most vulnerable and needy. Instead of letting myself have those feelings, and instead of figuring out what is the cause of those feelings, (might just be normal brain chemistry triggered by darkness) I typically choose to numb myself with the computer, carbs and sometimes cocktails. Actually, I typically drink wine, but I was looking for another "c" word, 'cause I'm clever like that.
This is just an experiment at this point. I was able to not eat after dinner last night. When I started to feel really hungry I realized that I was probably more likely tired than actually hungry because I had eaten a big dinner, so I went to bed instead of eating. If it doesn't work out, that's fine, but it's worth trying. I'll let you know.
