Food cravings at night............

How in hell do you deal with food cravings in the evening? Water doesn’t help me. I’m banging my head against the wall here.

Is it just strong will power-with that mental voice inside that says…“it’s up to you, how much do want it”…

Man I can put it away at night time. I’m getting 80 percent of my total calories during the day time and I’m still starving at night.

I have a feeling this will be the thorn in my side. It’s something I will have to deal with for the rest of my life. I just have to learn to say no. Again how bad do you want those abs to show?

Anybody else here struggle like myself with wanting to eat like a moose at nightime?

I have the same problem, so I can sympathize. I’ll eat clean all day long, then when I get home in the evening I’ll lose control. MD6 works great in the morning and afternoon, but I don’t want to take extra stimulants late in the evening. Maybe taking some 5-HTP alone after 5-6pm would work. I think that’s worth a try. I’ll bet the replacement for MD6 will be better to take at night. Does anybody have an idea of what kind of stimulant effects the MD6 replacement might have when it comes out?

I wake up about 5am every night and am friggin starving. I then read that late night meals, like my pm shake, cause your stomatch to produce a lot of acid, thus causing you to get terrible hunger pains later. So, now I take a mild antacid with my shake at night. It works indeed. No more ravenous nights. Though I realize that this doesnt really answer your question. Are you getting enough fats?
