I started cutting ANY food or drinks out (but water) 3 months ago, then switched to 7pm a month after. It has GREATLY helped with my weight-loss, and after a while, it becomes so easy! I just wanted to say that anyone thinking about this challenge should really do it.

After looking at my scale this morning, I realized that eating at night kills my weight loss. Not the calorie splurge (if there is one), but simply eating at night! I can eat 1200 calories both days, but the day that I eat past 8pm is the day that won't show a weight loss the next day. Weird how my body works.

I have the same problem. I snack at night because I am bored. That is probably my biggest issue. I could show a weight loss throughout the day but after eating junk at night I notice it is right back to where it was before. If you need support I am here Smile

Thanks for making this challenge! I have an easy time staying within my limits during the day, and its usually in front of the tv at night when I go over. I know the first few days will be hard, but I am looking forward to overcoming this obstacle.

i once heard to help not eat so late at night you should brush your teeth after your last meal or snack for the night

Eating late at night makes me hungry in the morning... so lets not even go there. Come on, Team We Ate Before Eight!! (aha.... excuse my corniness)

I tried to keep myself busy after 7 until bed time the first month. That way I didn't get bored and eat. And when I got hungry I'd pour myself a big glass of water and chug it. Made me full without eating. Good luck everyone! This could be a big change for a lifetime.

Oh man, Day one of no eating after 8! I better start going to bed earlier.

Eventually I want to be a healthy weight; and that means leaving a whole person behind.

I am having a rough time with this! I really want to break this habit, because I know eating at night is what is really keeping this weight on. I didn't do very well the firt week, but am going to recommit myself and try harder in the second week!
