I do a lot of the time because I will get hungry right before and if my stomach is growling I absolutely CANNOT go to sleep. I’ve tried. It usually involves tossing and turning for 30 minutes trying to ignore it then I’m up and rummaging in the kitchen.
I know you’re not supposed to eat right before bed, or really even after 8 PM (I think it’s 8 PM..?) but I have to.
My snack is almost always a small bowl of Special K.

I do this a lot and honestly, I think it keeps my weight in check by not making me feel like I’m depriving myself.

I eat a snack about an hour before I go to bed. If I don’t, I also toss and turn. And it also helps me keep my weight in check like veganglam. Ideally, you are supposed to have breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, snack. Doing this will help your metabolism and if you are trying to lose weight and are eating healthy, it will help you lose weight.

*sigh* Cinnamon Life…my late night guilty pleasure. Trying to cut back, tho’. Extra carbs right before sleeping doesn’t seem like the healthiest thing to do…

Glad I’m not the only one! I was looking down at my bowl of cereal going “I wonder if I should really be doing this…”

I’ve found that not eating a late night snack has been making a difference in my weight overall. If I feel like I’m hungry, I’ll drink a glass or two of water and then just go to bed, my body has learned to prefer extra sleep versus extra snacks.

sometimes I’ll take a few bites of ice cream before I go brush my teeth and hop into bed 😡

I’m with ClairDarling, tea all the way! I usually have mine about 2 hours before I go to bed and sometimes I’ll make up a small plate of biscuits and nibbles to snack on before I go brush my teeth.

I don’t need a snack because I usually don’t eat dinner till like 6 pm.

I don’t, because it actually upsets my stomach to fall asleep after eating. Plus I usually eat a fairly late dinner (6 pm or later)

I always eat before I go to bed! Actually I eat all the time anyway! LOL. I have Graves Diease and it makes me hungry all the time! I eat and eat all day and I can’t seem to gain any weight. I know a lot of people say I’m lucky, but really it stinks big time! I am always hungry, I don’t sleep well, I can’t find clothes to fit:( No fun!
