I can't control having a midnight snacks when I'm starving, I really want to control myself for a midnight snacks but its more worse getting in bed with my stomach crumbling. Although my wife so aware of it. She doesn't like midnight snacks or even any kind of food before bed. How about you? Are you one of those can't resist a midnight snacks. Do you control or indulged lol. What kind of food do you usually consumed for your midnight snacks.? Thanks.Happy sharing.

a pleasant day to you montevilla, your topic hits me at this point, well, i just had my midnight snack. although i am not taking it regularly except when i feel a crumbling inside my stomach. as i find it difficult to just ignore it, as it will lead to a stomach pain for me. so as i will eat at least a small part of a snack just to relieve the sudden hunger and craving.

I have the same feeling during midnight especially when dinner has been served quiet early. I can always feel that crumbling tummy so, I have to grab at least a bit of a snacks, a coffee, cookies or something. I hope I can get rid of it. Thanks for your response.

I was just thinking about this last night. I really need to quit munching on stuff so late. I just snack whenever. Not into all that health jibberish. I like chocolate, corn chips or licorice for my midnight snacks.

Its hard to quit when we know are tempted of something. Chocolate,corn chips are really hard to resist.lol. But I hope I really can,but I don't know how? Thank you for your response.

Just choosing not to and setting your mind to it is only way to stop. I just don't care and will if I care to.

i think it may make you fat. As I’ve pointed out before, snacking makes you both fat and weak. And as the beginning of “Eat Like A Predator” states, much of the purpose of a paleo diet is to let you avoid snacking entirely:

I guess you are right, that's my wife opinion and afraid of. It stored fat for the whole night. I think I have to to do something about it. Thanks for the response.

yes you are right. If you tend to get hungry late at night, fill your fridge with these 12 low-calorie options recommended by nutritionists and health-food writers.

Yeah, I also like to have midnight snacks. It is hard to resist eating when my stomach crumbles. But sometimes I don't have any food to eat, so I just drink much water, lol, but it works for me. By the time your stomach don't crumbles anymore.
23 Apr 13
I agree with you,resistance to a midnight snacks seems hard for me too. Water can be just fine and can temporary relieve hunger, I usually do that too. Thank you for your response.

I love midnight snacks! Although I must admit that too much midnight snacking does put a bulk on your figure LOL . So, the best way to handles such temptation is to put a little of everything.
23 Apr 13

Midnight is my favorite time to it. I don't know why I feels it that I want to crave lots of food at that time. I cannot control it because my mind tells me that I want to eat food. I actually consume junk foods but sometimes if we have fruits inside the refrigerator. I prefer to choose fruits.
23 Apr 13
That's actually the feeling I have during the night. I think its hard to control but for sure I will make a way to do it. Thank you for your response.

Wouldn't having midnight snacks be unhealthy? I never actually eat anything at 12 pm before going to sleep because that's fattening. But I don't really get why you're starving in the middle of the night. Usually when you're asleep at that time, you won't feel hunger at all.
23 Apr 13
When supper served early that 6PM I would surely feel that. I agree that its unhealthy so I think I have to get rid of it. Thanks for your response.

If ever I feel hungry during midnight, I open my freeze but do not eat what ever is available there, my first search is for some sweets or fruits because in that time I do not want to heat anything to eat. Or else I drink some juice and go for sleep again after having a glass of water.
23 Apr 13
I also doing the same and that could make me comfortable. I guess we sometimes need that.Thanks for your response.

I try to avoid eating midnight snacks coz i know that it would really make anyone fat and unhealthy. But when I was pregnant, sometimes I could not control my hunger so my husband would often buy me congee. Well, I did gain weight a lot---about 50 pounds!
23 Apr 13

in my college times,i liked to have midnight snacks occasionally.the snacks were various around my college,including dumplings,barbecue,fried chickens and bread etc.but usually i didn't eat too much as i wanted to sleep comfortable.after my 26 years' birthday.i nearly rejected all kinds of midnight snacks.cos i found that my metabolic function seemed worse than before.i always felt windy and i got more and more fat than before.i knew i couldn't eat midnight snacks any more.now,i get used to sleeping early,and never eat anything after my brushing teeth.
23 Apr 13
Yes I think people tend to slow metabolic rates gets slow but most of us here can't resist the midnight snacks,i'm in my early 30 and so I think I have to eliminate this hobby soon. Thank you for your response.

Well, I hardly do a snack before bedtime. However I must say that sometimes, especially when I had dinner with little food, before going to bed, or even if I'm awake a few more hours, around midnight I can eat a croissant, and soon after, however, I need to drink a cup of coffee . Ok bad habit (I mean that of coffee), but still for me, is like a vice to which I just do not know give it up. However, I must admit that if I am several kilograms overweight, the more I owe what I eat outside the meals regularly, for example, the snack of 4 pm.
13 Apr 13
I think I'm just being fine with my current weight but I guess I have to eliminate this since my wife had warned me about this for several times.Its kinda obvious that I will soon gain the weight she is afraid of. lol Thank you for your response.

I have the same habit and that makes me feel better before going to bed. I guess most of us here cannot go to bed with a stomach crumbling. Thanks for your response.
