Avoid late night snacking. It is easy to get hungry, especially if you are up late. What usually happens is that the foods you snack on late at night are less healthy and it is difficult to control the quantity of how much you eat. This leads to an unnecessary amount of calories consumed. To avoid this, try designating a time that serves as a cap for when you can eat. In addition, brushing your teeth at this time might serve as motivation for you to not eat because then you will have to do it again before bed.
