I don't know hon... I feel your pain, but I'm not sure how to address the situation.

From other things you've told me, she sounds a bit confrontational, so maybe this wouldn't be possible. I do think it's healthy though, cos' then you're re-establishing the friendship in lightness, not in the shadow of the past.
THe main thing you need to ask yourself through is - do you feel stable enough to start to build new boundaries with your sister? I think a big danger would be if you contact her now out of guilt and end up apologising for pulling away from her. I think you need to be clear in your heart that you did what you had to do, and you can feel compassion for her, but your relationship has to change now.
Great news about the SO though! Permanent change is gradual.
In relation to the hunger signals, this is a wild shot, but... stress hormones go up at night. Maybe your hunger signals are driven by stress? And maybe you're also just hungry after not eating all day. You also stay up quite late. Why don't you want to eat at night?
PS. I answered your question about grated courgettes on my journal

"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
