Night snack

Is it necessary to eat a night snack? This is traditionally a time for Binging for me, even a small planned snack is a trigger for one thing right after another - mindless eating in front of the TV. I finish eating dinner by 6pm and try to get to bed early (before 10) because I am up early. So is it okay to make dinner the last meal? Curious to hear what others do here, thanks!

I eat my evening meal around

I eat my evening meal around 630 - 7pm. The im in bed around 930 most evenings because I start work early.
I don't have a snack in the evening.
Im on average breakfast - 615am - Snack - 10am - Lunch - 1230pm - Snack 415pm then evening meal 630pm
So no I don't feel an evening snack is necessary providing you are eating enough calories in total for the meals and snacks you are having.

Hope this helps!
