Sometimes I eat before I go to sleep but if I do, it is not too much. I have lost 35 pounds and would like to keep it off. If I eat then before bed, I try to eat something with either high protein or fiber. Btw, for those that suffer from a hiatial (sp?) hernia, do not eat a lot before bed. You might regret it.

normally i don't eat before sleeping!It can happen sometimes but it is a real seldom fact..i think you should eat before in this way you can start to digest food before sleeping..

Recently I've stayed up late and always want to eat something before going to sleep. At that time I'll feel very comfortable but the next morning I would be too full to eat anything. It seems eating before sleeping isn't a good thing to me. But I just cannot stop:(

I don't like to eat right before I go to bed, but that doesn't mean that I don't eat before I go to bed. I have a hard time falling asleep without a sleeping aid, and thus, I have to take that about an hour before I go to bed. Then, that makes me have the munchies, so I end up munching on something before I go to bed. I don't eat a full meal before I go to bed, but I will have a half of a sandwich or a little bit of candy or something that is equally bad for me.

I usually eat about an hour before bed, but I usually only eat once a day, I've always done it and I'm just used to it. It's really an old wives tale that eating before bed is bad for you. It doesn't make you gain weight and doesn't make you have bad dreams. Some people do get heartburn and try to attribute that to eating before bed, when in actuality, they would have gotten the heatburn from whatever it was they ate even if they hadn't gone right to bed after eating. I don't see a problem with it myself but everybody is different so it just depends.

I don't really like to eat before I go to bed. But sometimes if I am hungry, I usually go get something to eat because I can't sleep if I am hungry.

Yes. I do eat before going to bed. I cannot really explain the reason why I always feel hungry before sleeping. I cannot control my appetite during late at night. If I won't eat before sleeping, then I might not be able to fall asleep because of hunger. I know this is not a healthy habit but I really couldn't help myself. I enjoy eating and eating especially if the food I am eating really tastes so good.

Its better if u eat 3hrs before you hit the bed.Sleep without dine is not good for health. Better have something which can be easily digested.Mostly prefer light tiffin at nights

I had put on a lot of weight due to my inactivity as I had met with an accident and so not quite mobile. I tried several methods that one gets to read about how to lose weight and finally I decided on my own to skip my night meal as a thought occurred to me that all what I eat converts into calories because of no exertion and bingo I lost 10 kilos in about a year. I have stuck put to this regime. I have a snack around 5 and a bowl of soup and milk an hour before caling it a day. This regime suits me.

I don't always like the idea of eating before I retire for the night, but I have no choice but to do so. I have hypoglycemia and if I don't, chances are very likely my sugars won't stay stable throughout the night and I won't sleep, or I will, and have low sugar in the morning which isn't very good for me or anyone around me. So I eat something small, or have a glass of milk a half an hour to an hour before going to bed.
