Do you wake up at night and raid the fridge? It could be more than peckishness. You could have "night-eating syndrome". "Night-eating syndrome" is a stress-related eating disorder. People that have this wake with the little appetite for breakfast and don't start eating until the afternoon, but by the evening are overeating. They they have trouble getting to sleep and wake once or more during the night for a snack. It occurs mostly, but not exclusively, in overweight people and can itself lead to obesity. How about you? Do you have a "night-eating syndrome"? Are you aware of this syndrome?
