The above snack ideas are

The above snack ideas are pretty awesome. Cant go wrong with a bit of fruit, yogurt, nuts. Even a scoop of sorbet or some sugar free jello with yougurt and nuts are really good and healthy and feels as good as dessert! im same, I often snack on chocolate in the evening, sometimes sugar free hard boiled sweets are good because they keep your mouth busy and I drink countless cups of herbal teas throughout the evening. Maybe its more a boredom thing than real hunger. Try chewing gum or brushing your teeth after meals.
And go to bed early!!

A good tip is to try and

A good tip is to try and include some protein in your snacks as they will fill you up but won't make you so full that you can't eat anything else. Things that are portable are great because you can have them to hand, so nuts and raisins, I actually also really like hard boiled eggs. Fruit is great too. One tip I will say if you find the evening is your worst time for binging- its mine too, once you have eaten your evening meal- wash up, put everything else away and kind of shut up the kitchen for the night. I even used to take the tea bags and kettle in to my bedroom as I was likely to snack while I made a late night cuppa! Also if you buy a bag of nuts, portion it out as soon as you get it home, so that you don't eat out the bag that way you have the snacks ready to go to so it is even easier.
