I seem to be getting very hungry come 10-11 o clock at night, whether I have calories to spend or not, and I am not too sure what to eat here, and I'm pretty sure my frequent bowls of Raisin Bran are not it

I usually have two shakes during the day as it is so I don't want to make one of those, nor do I want something crappy

when the problem is real bad is when I have no calories to spend

any suggestions?

Usually a glass of water fills up my stomach enough so that the hunger pains stop just long enough for me to go to sleep.

Eat a little less during the day and save more calories for a meal at the end of the day. You could also try lowering your carbs a bit and upping your fat and protein to feel more satiated.

That would probably work. Or if you must eat...maybe try Columbo's fat free yogurt..

non fat cottage cheese. great for a late night snack. and if your lacking cals then eat less during the day to accomodate your nightly cravings.

You can DL 505 but you don't eat protein right before bed? You may be at 550 now if you did. :)

I think Scarz is right - save some cals so that you can consume some (casein) protein and (quality) fat right before bed, or else your system will use your muscle for energy.

cottage cheese with nuts and berries or a protein smoothie

try non buttered popcorn before bed, light snack that has virtually no calories. Drink water with it and it will take care of the hunger pain.

If you want almost no calories, a salad with vinigar is pretty much calorie free. But I dont know if you want salad...

save some cals and eat 1 cup Fat free Cottage cheese with 2 tbsp PB (add sweetner and cinnamon) Thats about 330 cals right there. Itll set you for the night.

Not if it has no calories to grow with. You don't want to go 8-10 hours with nothing in your belly, it's preferable to eat some cottage cheese right before bed, whether your hungry or not.

Why cut anything out? You have powerlifting numbers in your sig and it says you are bulking. Eat another meal.

You are bulking, eat. If you have a bodybuilding comp coming up then worry about the calories you have to "spend".

:withstupi...who track their cals when their bulking anyway?

I make sure to set aside some fat and protien before bed.

that is the whole problem

I went from 192-206 over the summer, eating, lifting, and supplimenting

I got a lot stronger, but a good bit less lean

I went from prolly 11/12% - 14/15%

yea that is good and all, but I don't enjoy being pudgy, and so i have dropped calories a bit, to around maintenance, thus the hunger sets in

my sig is a bit old, I should update it, and for Chris to say I have powerlifting numbers, lol that makes me feel good

If you can allow it, pieces of meat are good before bed. If I could afford it with my wallet and calories, a big juicey steak before bed would do me just fine :)
