Hi Christine, I know how you feel about the weird "shift work" stuff and late night snacking. (I work a rotating shift) While I know it is hard, and believe me, nothing is exactly foolproof, what works for me is when I get home after work, as I am going for the snack, I ask myself, "Am I really hungry?" If the answer is "Yes" then I go ahead and eat (I try to make it a healthy snack which should be readily available). Most of the time, the answer is "no" and I am looking to snack to ignore something else (either I am very tired or I am stressed from work) If that is the case, I try to find out what that reason is and deal with that with out the food (by going to sleep, going for a walk, watching TV or playing with my daughter.) It seems to work for me...Hang in and dont give up!
