I need to lose the remaining 7 pounds...
 
Hi everyone, I just join this site and hope that I can find some tips to stop my Yo Yo diet. I was down to my ideal weight for a few weeks now but recently I have been eating late at night. I just cannot stop my cravings. During my weight lost period, I was following a 3 weeks diet plan. I was strict with my diet but now I am eating everything under the sun . Especially at night. I am very much in control in the day time. When the sun sets, I start eating. I usually is able to only eat up to 500 calories until 7pm. Then I will start eating junk food and stuff that I don't even eat normally. I don't know what is wrong with me and in order to stop my cravings, I try to put my focus on my blog at night.
On my blog, I like to post some good recipes and exercises routine that can inspire me and others. I would appreciate any comments or suggestions. I really need to be back on track.

Personally, I'm not surprised that you are gorging on junk food in the evening if you're only eating 500 calories during the day. You're effectively telling your body that it's starving. Then it fights back by subjecting you to these cravings in the evening when you're at home, possibly not busy, and less able to resist them.

There's a saying which goes something like "Breakfast like a King, lunch like a Prince, dine like a pauper". I think a lot of people underestimate the importance of breakfast which is probably the most critical meal of the day, eating after an eight or ten hour fast.

Why not try balancing your calorie/carb intake evenly during the day with more emphasis on breakfast and lunch? It's worth a try :)
