Angry midnight munchies

alright so im a night owl, going to bed at the earliest by 2:30am.....and i know eating at night is BAD....but i get sooooo hungry. I tried to drink water....that didnt work....i was in the bathroom alllllllll morning peeing every 5 minutes and that got annoying REAL QUICK (sorry for the graphics ) but i have a bladder the size of a pea so this drinking water thing to fill you up...doesnt work for me. (anyone else have this problem?) so anyway to satisfy my hunger at night...what to do....ignoring it is next to impossible...theres nothing like going to bed hungry. I tried chewing gum...which didnt work so well...im so frustrated!

Try starting your day at night. Example - start counting your points at say 9 pm for your supper & have a snack later on. Then count your next day breakfast & lunch then that is one complete day. I find this an easier way for me to count my points.
Before I never seemed to have enought points for at night. This way if I over-indulge I make it up at breakfast & lunch. This works way better for me. Give it a try - hope it works for you.

Good luck.

I just saw on Oprah this week her trainer answering this question. He said that it is not so important to not eat at night, just to quit eating three hours before you will go to bed (to sleep) so you are not going to bed full. Hope this helps.
