View Full Version : late night meals/snacks?

01-21-2002, 02:21 AM
Hi there,
Well like most of us, i'm trying to loose some weight. I"m active, work out about 4 times a week, Tea Kwon Do 2 times, run about 2 10k twice a week as well. My question is, i get super hungry at night, i go to bed late, usually around 3am and get up about 7 hours later, or less, is it OK to have a meal just before bed time, or is a light snack better? And what sort of meal, i generally stay away from lots of Carbs, and am certainly diet conscious, so i don't want to have what ever i eat at night to turn to fat (though i don't think it would if one's active daily), so what's the best course of action. I also find i get hungrier on days that i've trained. Thanks .

I would have some Egg Whites, Cottage Cheese, Milk and some Flax seed oil. You can have some of these or all of them.

Flaxseed oil is a vegetable oil that contains linoleic acid,which is an essential fatty acid needed for survival.But unlike most oils,it also contains high amounts of another essential fatty acid known as alpha linolenic acid (ALA)
It's vital to healthy skin,heart,circulation,nerves,brain,immunity and for making energy.
It is not recommended to cook with flaxseed oil.
