    @Jayk and @Natalie

    Thanks for you encouraging posts. I also noticed that reading a book and avoiding alcohol helps big time. However, I just found something that works amazingly well for any residual night eating I had: OTC lithium supplement.

    While metformin took care of 70-80% night eating, some still persisted, especially when I stayed late and/or watched TV.

    But, 2 weeks ago I discovered something that totally eliminated my night eating. Lithium supplements in mid to late afternoon, about 4PM. Not only it makes me calmer, but also eliminates night eating, the obsession with eating is simple not there. I understand that Lithium is actually used by some MDs for eating disorders, so no, I'm not bipolar. Interestingly, I tried it before in AM and it had impact on night eating. I think the PM timing of lithium fixes my chronically broken diurnal cycle body clock. Sure enough, I was always an evening person and only hungry in PM.

    Lithium is available OTC as lithium orotate. More than one pill works better for me. The only thing is people with hypothyroid should be careful as it makes hypothyroid worse. But this should stack well with HCG as HCG is known to stimulate thyroid.

    That's awesome, Jack! I've heard that many people can benefit from lithium.

    I have this as well. It gets so bad that if i resist the urge to snack then once i fall asleep, i sleep eat. There's nothing freakier then waking up with lunchables and popcorn all over you. Ive done it since i can remember. =(

    i haven't been to this forum in a long time. i guess that means i'm doing reasonably well, and moved on to other things. recently i broke my limit of 200lbs that held for over a year, and decided to come back and update. the night eating became less an issue, and i really don't know what eventually helped. i still take low dose lithium in PM, and started taking a low dose lamictal in AM a year ago, for the reason that i became hypomaniac after reconnecting with an old flame of mine. then, in the last december, i added agmatine to my regiment due to complications with my new love (considering that we are both married and it's unrequited). the final piece of the puzzle is i recently came back from vacations in Hawaii (5 hrs time difference), and that time zone adjustment made us wake up early and go bed early, skipping dinner.

    the best i can figure it out, i had a bad lifelong mental habit of night eating that was hard to shake, and the various meds/supplements and the circumstances made it possible for me to replace the habit with a healthy one. the transition took a long time, and fortunately i was too busy with other things to worry about it. Did i mention i take metformin, too? it helps with prediabetes and losing weight too.

    the best is being in love, LOL. one doesn't eat or sleep; pure dopamine. the crash is hard thought. 2018 was the year i was the happiest ever followed by deep pain. i don't even see the girl personally. we live on different continents. good luck to all of you and love you all!

    edit: i just remembered, there could be also one more thing that helped and maybe even the most important. i make sure i don't eat for at least 12 hrs between PM meal and next day AM meal. what that means is when i eat early dinner and don't snack later in PM, i can reward myself with a filling breakfast next AM. if i do snack in PM that means i have to skip breakfast. this serves as a system of penalty and award that keeps me on track.

    the whole process started over 3 years ago with HCG that jump started the whole process, so i'm very thankful to this community. however, i have to admit that the process is way more complicated than just HCG or just the diet. it's truly a lifestyle change and fixing your broken psyche. some other people start it by bariatric surgery, but i'm happy i avoided that.

    Very happy for you as well that you didn't need surgery. The hcg is the way to go. And your right, one has to change their lifestyle as well .

    I am sure you will get back to where you want to be.... Good Luck
