What do you do when you are really hungry at night?

I try a cup of tea. And I have a bunch of different kinds so I never feel bored. Sometimes I will add a little honey or soy milk (or both), other teas I drink clear. Vanilla or caramel flavoured rooibos teas are really delicious - sweet and naturally caffeine free! I also have a coconut chai tea that I really like.

I make mug of coffee with instant coffee and a cup of lactose-free milk (81 calories). Milky coffee always feels decadent, so I feel mentally satisfied as well as physically. If all else fails, I go to bed (instant coffee never keeps me awake.)

Fiber One yogurt only has 50 calories, I try to just eat one and go to bed. I like to read so often curling up in bed and reading does it for me.

If I'm genuinely experiencing physical symptoms of hunger (e.g., stomach rumbling), at any time of day or night, I would definitely eat or drink something. I think it's really important to listen to your body and respond appropriately. I think drinks, like the ladies above mentioned, is a great idea. There are other small snacks you could eat too, like a slice of bread, some yoghurt, some nuts or fruit, crackers, etc. If I found myself repeatedly being physically hungry late at night (e.g., more than half the time), I would look to what I was eating during the day and make adjustments so that I felt satisfied throughout the day, and only hungry towards meal times and times when I was planning to eat.

What kind of hunger? If it's just a strong urge to eat, I just ignore it, or drink something without calories. But if I am light-headed, stomach grinding hungry, then I eat something and add it to my daily count: a 100 calorie bag of popcorn or a pile of carrots or 6 triscuits. It doesn't have to be a meal to take the edge off.

If I go to bed really hungry (not just really wanting to eat), I will not sleep, and spending all night awake thinking about how hungry I am is NOT a good way to stay on plan the next day.
