View Full Version : Eating at night

10-08-2002, 11:06 AM
No matter what I eat (even right before I go to sleep) I wake up in the morning dead hungry with my stomash growling..

I even ate two full KFC Twister/fries combos 20 minutes before I went to sleep but still woke up hungry as a bull.

Anyone else who is like this? I'd like to find a solution if possible..

I'm the exact same way. I started making a shake before I go to bed and if I wake up during the night, have that and I am usually good in the morning. My body is use to eating every 2 to 3 hours now and if I don't eat my body definately lets me know about it.

nice quote, lol.

yeah i'm curious about finding a solution that doesn't require me to wake up at night...

sleep is very precious to me :D

So you wake up hungry....

EAT when you wake up.

if you're eating before bed and not sleeping heinous amounts (i.e. 8 hours is lots) then just suck it up and eat something as soon as you get up.

I mean you MIGHT be able to devise some kind of complicated solution involving slow-release protein capsules or some damned thing, but what's the point. You're not going to die from hunger...

Aren't some of the supplement companies advertising a time released protein shake or something like that??? Maybe that would help....

I'll sell you time release protein for $10 a 1lb can, its tuna flavored.

Having a protein shake before going to sleep might help...I've been trying that and it seems that I'm not as hungry in the morning.

Try having some more fat in your last meal.

I eat tuna and walnut oil before bed, sometimes with some green veg (broccoli or cauliflower); or steak.

Either way i'm always good.

before bedtime i gulp down 16oz. mik(skim) w/ a scoop of whey. i wake up feeling pretty good and not that hungry.

if i eat too much before i go to bed i get crazy ass dreams

10-08-2002, 03:14 PM

KFC = tuttut

Hope that was your cheat meal.

Just eat when you wake up in the morning.

st.patrick - nope, hehe.

was at my friends house when my mom called me and told me they have 2 extra twister combos at the house (sister/dad didn't eat) so i rushed over and ate.

i don't really watch my diet for fat+cholesterol.. as long as i get my protein/fiber i'm happy.

Are you referring to the KFC crap stated earlier?

Seriously, processed junk like that won't keep you satied for long.

Go for a more complex protein (like tuna etc...)

A decent amount of fat (like oil or nuts etc...)

And depending on whether you do this or not (cause i know a lot don't like it, personally i don't care) some complex carbs (like oats, brown rice, sweet potato).

Maybe some fibre like green veg or some waterous/fibrous fruit like an apple or strawberries etc...

i don't see what the issue is. i'd be thrilled to wake up starving. it means your metabolism is working.

tuna and broccoli or cottage cheese & flax oil is pretty slow absorbing, thats what i have.

I eat every two to three hours myself. PB&J before bed or a protein shake works for me. I still wake up in the morning hungry.

id luv to eat in the mourning but i gotta wait 2 hrs b4 i get to skool for them to give me their "tease" breakfast :(

If I didn't wake up hungry I'd be worried.....cause thered be no way I'd be able to consume the amounts of food through out the day that I do.

In my opinion, this is the best before bed meal. 1 cup of cottage cheese, 6 egg whites, and some flax. You get high quality slow absorbing protein and high quality fat in the flax, which may slow the digestion of the proteins further. This meal should take much longer to digest than what you're currently eating, and reduce early morning hunger.
