  • OMG, I can go all day without eating, dieting or not. But once night time comes I just can't help it. I almost always have a late night snack. But I'm a person who stays up late too. So maybe that has something to do with it.

  • Yes! I have something sweet or crunchy while I am watching TV, otherwise I would be starving when I hit the hay. But I do make a cutoff time of 9.

  • well, i'm 7 months pregnant right now, so there isn't much i walk by without trying to eat it.
    that being said...
    even when i'm not pregnant (or breastfeeding, for that matter) i'm definitely guilty of 2am poptarts and milk. or whatever else i can get my little hands on.

  • oh yes. Pretty much every night I'll have a little snack after dinner, after DD is in bed. And then I PASS OUT from exhaustion lol Im a rapid metaboliser, so I would not make it through the night if I didn't eat before bed

  • I have heard, and actually it has worked out well for me, that hunger after you have already eaten is a sign of dehydration. You should drink a glass of water if you feel the urge to eat after a meal. Sometimes hunger is the only way your body knows how to tell you you need water.
    There is a very good book called you bodies many cries for water that I checked out from my library, it had some excellent information in it that you should check out whenever you can.
