I have a problem that I get hungry at the wrong times. Generally, I can eat whenever I want to, that's not the problem; I never feel like I can't eat. But at night I tend to feel very hungry. This is inappropriate, because I think I should be eating more in the morning and afternoon, and less in the evening, and nothing at night. But I feel more and more hungry throughout the day, just keep getting more and more hungry as the night progresses. Is there a way to stop this happening, or do I just have to continue with will-power? I'd prefer to be hungry in the morning and not at night.

i once heard that you should eat less in the evening, but i always prefer to go to bed with a full stomach. this is the only way you will beat hunger in the night. a protein smoothie is always good as it is digested easily and you will still be reasonably hungry in the morning.

Is it better to consume something like a protein drink at night, instead of force myself to consume nothing and remain hungry when trying to sleep?

Yea I find it very non ultramatus complimendre to sleep on an empty stomach, but I can make myself deal with it if it would benefit me.

this may not be your case, but it's important to distinguish whether you're body is actually hungry, or you are simply feeling an appetite. the difference being that you're either following inner signals with hunger, or triggered to eat by boredom or other misguided emotions.

often times feelings are numbed by the rush from food, and your body craves that sense of relief. if that's the case, and you still can't relieve the boredom -- seltzer, water, or a small snack chewed slowly, like raw vegetables, etc. is a great alternative until you understand what's triggering you and feel through it.

the heavy evening appetite's not uncommon since the day is often filled with activity and the night's more calm. there isn't as much going on to distract you from bored, tired, anxious, etc. feelings.


much love,
erinn

Maybe you're right. My activity during the day isn't very different to my activity at night though. And in the mornings, I can wake up, and do absolutely nothing, and not be hungry. Or I can get up, lift weights and go running, and still not be hungry. I only get hungry later on no matter what.

Eat fiber during the times you normally will get hungry. Mostly soluble fiber since it stays in the system longer than insoluble fiber.

Cool thanks. What is soluble fibre? In what kinds of food is it?

You are welcome. Soluble Fibers (meaning they dissolve in water) are in the following foods:

Oats
Brown Rice
Barley
Oat Bran
Dried beans and Peas
Rye
Seeds
Vegetables (especially carrots, corn, cauliflower, and sweet potatoes)
Fruits (especially apples, strawberries, orangaes, bananas, nectarines, and pears)

You may notice how the corn stays in your stool. Basically they go out. They have no nutritional value (the fiber part, not the entire food). It also helps fight cholestoral (which no one here should have a problem with since no one eats meat) by binding to it and taking it out with it.

I paddle on a dragon boat team, for a while I would be so hungry by the time practice was over I had to eat as soon as I got to my car. Then I started seeing a personal trainer. She told me it was probably not a good sign. She told me I should be getting a protein, a fat, a complex carb, and some fruits and or veggies with every meal. This is helping a lot. I was really neglecting proteins and fats at some of my meals. Now I never get to the point where I feel like I’m starving. Also your body is still working even when you’re sleeping, although at a much slower rate, it still need fuel. If you don’t give it what it needs it will start to brake down your fat and muscles.

Maybe I am not eating the right sek-lection (selection) of foods. I can eat however much I want, constantly, but I am still hungry at night. Seriously, at night I am never full, unless I am ill

Would you advise me to do the same, to just deal with being hungry and go without food after a certain time at night?
