I am another that has a really hard time in the evenings. Is it true hunger, or just a habit? Not sure. Because of my prediabetic condition I try and eat 10 or 11 almonds at night, as I am not supposed to go without food for too many hours (it raises blood sugar) but it is HARD to stop there!!
Oh, and as for as the soda pop goes...none for me since Dec 31, 2009...and coming from a recovering coke (as in coca cola! LOL!!) addict, that is SOMETHING!!
