I am eating now. If I were younger, I would have just prepared an instant cup noodles and ate the remaining apple strudel in the fridge. Back in my country, I was not lactose intolerant then or maybe I was but I never really realized it, I would eat oreo dipped in a glass of milk. Cereals with milk would have been the next option. I am so Ameicanized. lol. Instead I went for musli with some fruits and soya milk now. I am so tempted to eat the apple strudel. I have a feeling, I am going for it in a little while. Whew! And you guys, what do you usually eat in the middle of the night?

If I cannot sleep, and I'm hungry. Obviously I would eat something or cook something. I don't mind about the diet thing during midnight snacks.

For me, it just irritates my skin if I don't eat the right kind of food especially when I am tired or in the middle of the night. Sometimes I am thankful for this skin reaction I have. Otherwise I hate it coz, it is so easy to get into trouble and it takes days for it to be back in shape. I still got a fast metabolism, it is just my skin. But you are right with midnight snacks. It feels so good eating the bad stuff. I would even eat chips and drink cola before. Happy snack time.:)

What a coincidence!!.. I also have a skin allergy, it occurs when I eat too much foods with sugar or oil on it. When the reaction begin, I stop eating and drink lots of water..

You hate this for sure. When your skin clears up again then you challenge your self going back to the forbidden food, yeah? And then, the skin gets wrecked once more. It is just an unending cycle. Food is just such a complicated thing. It nourishes and kills you at the same time. It is so tempting to get wild with food. One of the best experiences in life is to satiate your craving for a particular food no matter how bad that could affect your health.:)

Nice question and no chance in my home because we cant make noodles at night time not like my in laws. But some time I stored chiwda in my bedroom wake up and eat. Some time I forget to eat the meals at night time then feel hungry but not wake up and wait till morning.

in college, i had a skinny classmate who had a big appetite. she cannot sleep on an empty stomach. even if she's so sleepy, her growling stomach will wake her up. she said she would be at the table, feeding herself, with her eyes closed.

Lol. It reminds me of one housemate of mine who would sleep while we are eating dinner. We usually come home late coz we worked in the same company. Physically tired all the time. I would usually eat fast so I could already rest but she would even take a break from eating and would sleep for a while on the sofa. She was just one of a kind.:)

I am usually awake in the middle of the night studying, working, and commenting here in myLot. Well, in the middle of the night, I usually eat fruits, cookies or instant noodles and canned goods with one glass of milk. It good enough for me until breakfast time comes.

Well, For me I cant really avoid that kind of a habit, every time that i do get up late at night i do need or have the feeling i need to really grab a quick snack, i just cant help it but i really do grab a bite even though it is against my diet.

I simply eat at anytime I am hungry. Way back in Africa, particularly Nigeria, the wether condition is favourable that one can eat whatever they desired at all times. All these facts put together, one must be desireous of balanced diet.

Hi taiwanlife. You remind me to purchase cup noodles instead of those in the packs. Hehe. Anyways, when I'm hungry surely I can't sleep. I grab a banana and drink water to satisfy my hunger. I don't eat biscuits anymore long time ago since it's not healthy. I also like eating cereals with milk as it is advisable as midnight snack. When I am sure to catch up on my sleep and can stay a little longer awake, I take a bread and put peanut butter on it or Reno liver spread. Yummy!

When I get hungry in the middle of the night sometimes I like to get up and cook myself a little piece of meat on the stove. Sure it sounds a little unorthodox but hear me out when I say that it's very filling and even makes me a little sleepy. I don't really like eating carbohydrates at night because the resulting sugar rush makes it impossible to go back to bed.

Sometimes when I'm hungry during the night I like to get up and cook myself a little piece of meat to tide me over. I really don't like eating carbohydrates because the resulting sugar rush really messes with me when trying to get back to get.

Hi friend, I also eating in the middle of night if I hungry, because I cannot sleep with empty tummy, although I am not eat until full. Usually, I eat a sheet of bread with jam and a glass of water or milk. I think it is not bad habit rather than we let our tummy empty. Have a nice dream.

I will most probably get out of bed and get something to eat. I would eat what's there to eat. Usually some biscuits and milk, because that's often what we have in the house in the middle of the night. We usually don't put much in our fridge.

Some times I do when I feel that I can't tolerate the hunger anymore. but as long as I can handle my hunger- I will try to avoid eating because I am afraid of gaining more weight.

As for me, i think when i can't sleep and still hungry, I will not eating heavy food, because heavy food when eating at night before sleep is unhealthy. So i think maybe just a glass of warm milk, with 3 cookies, and cup sized instant noodle is my favorite. Or when there is fruits, like mango, papaya, watermelon n musk melon, that would be a great healthy food if i can't go to sleep.

If so, I will not get up and cook something or go out to eat something. Since it will be troublesome in my opinion. Usually I will just try to fall asleep and wait until next day to have the breakfast.

usually we dont eat at midnight .;-). Its only rarely that our body asks for it at such a time. But If i ever get into such situation I just search for wtever I can find to satisfy my growling beast. I dont have anything special in mind.
