Food means different things for different people. Some eat to live while others live to eat, according to an old saying.
Food can be comforting to some people, and they rely on it when they are lonely, frustrated, or even mad. Others turn to a bottle of alcohol, so I guess food isn't as bad. But, it still can be a problem, especially when it develops into more serious eating disorders such as bulemia.
Late night eating can also be comforting to people when they canoot sleep, or find themself bored with what is going on.
When one is aware of the reason they are eating it can be better controlled. It is important to stop and think before eating more than just the normal meals in a day.
