Hi all,
I am new to this so any pointers you have would be fantastic.
Here's some background information on myself and why I joined: I work out like crazy! I ran my first marathon this year and swam competitively for eight years. I workout five days a week if it's an extremely busy week, but I mostly workout 6-7 days a week for at least an hour and half. You would think I would lose weight, but the fact is, I am gaining! I am always so hungry from working out. I don't eat junk food and I love fresh veggies (without oil) and salad (without dressing). However, I eat an enormous amount at night. It's like I have no control. I am going to say I had at least 14 servings of nonfat ricotta cheese last night. I can't get out of the habit of over eating at night and undoing all of my hard work during the day! It's awful! Has anyone experienced this? Anyone know how to combat this awful problem? I live alone too, so there is no one to slap some sense into me (or food out of my mouth!)

Thanks for your help!!

Hi and welcome aboard! Yeah, I too have been in the situation you are talking about. Eating way too much at night....I have found that eating some of what I like in the daytime helps me avoid saving all of the treats for later. It was comforting to me to have that food at night especially when working long hours and having crazy days. I still have very long hours and have super crazy days but I now plan when I am going to overeat. If it is at night, trust me it is planned and I would have been eating well for at least 5 or 6 days prior to that. That might work for you.Definitely sounds like you are depriving yourself during the day and making up for it at night. I also used to think that just because a food was lowfat that I could over indulge in it. I was proven wrong when I started gaining weight from healthy food. Hang in there and I am sure you will find a good balance with food and exercise. Good luck! Niceee
