In the battle- of- the-bulge only the strong survive. It's not easy: binge-eating, excessive snacking, chocolate addiction and comfort eating are only some of the vices our users deal with.  If you're battling with any of these, read how others on the Talk forums manage their situation.

Could someone please give me some advice how to stop eating in the middle of the night? I always try and have a healthy snack before going to bed, but still wake up round about 02:00 am and go straight to the fridge without even thinking, and eat any leftovers (most of the time things I would not eat during the day).  I tried having a glass of milk or water instead, but then I can't get to sleep and still end up going to the fridge. I think this is one of the reasons I don't lose weight.
