Re: question on night eating..

I usually have something to eat right before I go to sleep. I am so used to it. I don't like eating too much at a time, I prefer to take several smaller meals over the day. I am often hungry again right before I go to bed.
I usually eat some bread and fruit, or a musli or something.

Re: question on night eating..

I will ignore the 11:00 hunger by telling myself:

1. Nobody ever starved 4 hours after dinner
2. I'll be asleep in an hour and will probably sleep BETTER without any new food in my stomach.
3. THe 7 PM meal won't be fully absorbed til probably near dawn
4. I'll feel proud of myself in the morning if I don't eat at 11:00PM

Re: question on night eating..

At night I almost always eat some fruit and cottage cheese or yogurt. Veggies and dip, and or cereal is also a good lowfat healthy choice.

Re: question on night eating..

If you really must eat, try an apple or something light.

Re: question on night eating..

If you need to eat keep it 100 calories or less mostly protein.

Where are you going to take it? Seriously, eating late at night does not impact your weight..only your sleeping or may give you indigestion if it's spicey and you are prone to such...

Re: question on night eating..

I need to fast at least 8 hrs. My last meal is 6pm. And i need the extraction at 7am (11 hrs diff). But the amount of time to fast is only 8 hrs, so i have to eat at around 11 at night.

the problem is, i sleep at around 8:30pm, and i need to wake up at 11 just to eat.

What would be the be the best to eat? I would be sleeping right after. No protein powder please.

Would milk or yogurt be good? Which is better? Would that me considered as eating somthing for the fasting of 8 hrs?

Re: question on night eating..

Eating late at night has no effect whatsoever on gaining weight or anything. If, over the course of the day, you ate too much and this is extra food you dont need, then ou would gain weight. But eating RIGHT before bed, or even waking up to have a snack, or eating late at night has no bearing whatsoever. This is a common misconception because people who eat before bed tend to gain weight- because they tend to eat in front of the tv, and instead of controlling portions they'll zone out and eat a bag of cookies. THAT is why people gain weight from night eating, and no other reason than that.

Re: question on night eating..

I tend to agree with that due to of personal experience: I am very thin and I usually eat the largest amount of food right before I go to bed.
But it is also true that everybody's metabolism is different. Maybe some people do gain weight easier if they eat late? Maybe has to do something with circadian rhythm or something?

Re: question on night eating..

fawn- why can you not sleep through the night? Why do you have to fast for only 8 hrs, no more? Your body will adapt if it doesnt get enough food over the night- you will probably be very hungry in the morning.

As for what to eat- have whatever you'd like. Some sort of dairy is good, like warm milk, because it may help you get back to sleep. Tea (caffeine free, like green tea or herbal tea) with toast is also good, or crackers, etc. An apple and protein is good, some nuts...basically anything you want!
