I had the same issue. I was always eating toast at 9:30, right before bed, made me feel full and sleepy. I just changed my habit. It took time but I don't eat before bed anymore. Try some protein with your carb, peanut butter on a pita or apple?

Thank you Laura. Appreciate your suggestion. How did you handle the craving/urge to eat those carbs after 8pm?

I gave in to those cravings quite a lot and then I just told myself it wasn't worth it, drink a glass of water (take a sleeping pill) and go lay down with a book. I think it was more eating out restlessness. I can remember making it a before bed time ritual. The trick is to replace the eating with something else (healthier than a sleeping pill).
