By John Stevens ______________________________________________________________________ MANY of us reach for a biscuit or chocolate bar when we’re feeling a little fed-up. So small wonder that Sunday evening with its pre-Monday blues is the time we’re most likely to comfort eat. ‘Nearly half of us (48 per cent) said we’re most prone to munching on unhealthy snacks such as crisps and cake between 7pm and 10pm on Sundays. A further 29 per cent said they were most likely to fall off their diet plans between 3pm and 5pm the same day. Monday, meanwhile, was the most likely weekday when people reach for foods with high fat and sugar. According to the survey of 750 people, most over-eating happens at or after dinner time. On average, we eat two extra snacks after a meal. The study found much over-eating was work-related, with 65 per saying they raided the biscuit barrel if they had a bad day at the office. Lee Smith, of diet supplements brand Forza, which commissioned the study, said: ‘Fat o’clock is a night-mare for dieters. It’s that time when you’re especially vulnerable and the only thing that is going to stop your cravings is a padlock on the pantry.’
