If you aren't already supplementing Magnesium, try 400-600 mg before bed. See if you stop binging (give it at least 6 weeks.) If not, it's likely psychological/emotional attachment.

Pizza, ice cream, and wontons are appealing junk food, not "dairy foods," even if they contain dairy. If you were binging on, say, cottage cheese and yogurt I could imagine it having something to do with dairy.

She's an idiot. You sleep every night without waking up to eat, right? As long as you eat enough, it doesn't matter if it's in one big meal or 30 small ones, or something in between.
