Eating in the middle of the night???

Eating in the middle of the night???
Does anyone wake up mutiple times a night feeling like they are starving? I wake up several times a night and am hungery and feel like I have to eat something. I know that I need to not do that since I am sure that its contributing to my not being able to loose weight and my gaining. Why do I do this and does anyone have any advice on how to control this and stop?

  • That's not good. You must not be sleeping well for you to be waking up to eat. Eating in the middle of the night, that's strange. Do something to help yourself sleep better and stay asleep at night.

  • Are you eating enough throughout the day? You should not NEVER go more than 6-hours without eating. I used to do that also, I learned that I was going 4 hours or more without eating. I eat every 4-5 hours religiously, otherwise at 2am I am at the kitchen table with Oreos and milk.
