It’s 10pm… You have eaten pretty well throughout the day. You aren’t REALLY hungry, but you just “fancy” something.
Then you hear it, out of nowhere… That bar of chocolate that you stashed at the back of the cupboard last week – for emergency use only. It’s calling your name.
You ignore it for a while, telling yourself that you don’t need it; You don’t want it, honestly. You resist and tell yourself to be strong, but the calling gets louder and the temptation gets stronger.
Eventually chocolate is the only thing you can think about and the yearning just gets too much. Your mouth is watering just thinking about it. You find yourself in the kitchen, rummaging through the cupboard, until you spot it, that shiny gold wrapper, catching the light and twinkling at you.
You tell yourself “I’ll just have a couple of squares”, as you walk back to the sofa, chocolate in hand. The smell of the chocolate filling your nostrils as you open the wrapper… The taste of it as it slowly melts in your mouth. Such sweet sugary bliss.
Before you know it, you have eaten the lot.
If your late night snacking is getting a little out of hand and you find food mysteriously disappearing in your presence, then give me a shout!
