Night time hunger

Does anyone else get really hungry during the night or right before you attempt to go to sleep? Im supposed to be losing weight and on a diet but I cant stop snacking late at night.

Yeah, I struggle with snacking too. I’m trying to lose weight to reverse my diabetes through diet and exercise but I slack off in both areas sometimes.

Sorry to hear about your diabetes, I have a couple of family members who have it too. Eating healthy is so fuc-king hard, but we can both do it! Just gotta keep trying @Bowens

Yeah, just gotta keep putting forth the effort and hopefully someday it will stick.

Yes!!! It’s after I take my meds, but before I fall asleep.

I eat yogurt to take my night meds and sometimes a banana which helps stave off hunger

@FatMama - A banana is a good idea for a late night snack! I like the way you think!

In Essex I’d quite often eat very late at night. I’ve rarely done it since moving from there in 2017.

You’ve inspired me to buy pb and soft white bread jam, and make myself a nice dinner with that for tonight… :yum:

I also like a layer of butter.

I’m always hungry right after taking my night medication. I usually eat before that and then go to sleep.

yea i get hungry later on the evening also… but i always ask my mum if it is too late to eat something still and if she says yes it’s too late then i just ride the hunger a bit till it passes… i seem to be able to manage it like that.

I used to eat before sleeping but it was making my sleep worse like burping and having acid in my throat etc while sleeping, really uncomfortable. I dont eat after 8pm anymore.

Sometimes the acid gets into my nose and it burns.
