I'm so sorry that you've been struggling with the nutrition piece. That really is such a key that just messes with our minds. I posted a piece of paper on the refrigerator, in the pantry, etc. that reminds me that cheat meals are psychological and "if you're in the zone, don't even sniff a cheat meal". This causes me to shut the pantry door and move on. For me, the evening snacking is a factor, too. I've cut this out with very few exceptions (like after a fast that ends at dinner, I'll have a piece of fruit or some yogurt later in the evening). These things really have worked for me...maybe something like this will work for you as well? Good luck!
