WHAT is with the night time snacking? You aren’t even hungry. Actually you’re full. Over full!

There’s nothing wrong with a “snack” but now you are entering the eating just to eat stage. Night after night it’s the same thing. You don’t even know WHY you are pillaging the pantry, you just are. Is out of habit? Boredom? What? WHAT is it?!?

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Interesting! I find myself sometimes wanting to eat on nights when I’ve already eaten all of my daily points and I sort of have a mini-panic, thinking, “oh no! Even if I was hungry I couldn’t eat anything!” Which isn’t true on any level: I could eat weeklies, or I could eat free fruit or vegetables. It sounds like your compulsion is different but we’re all in this together. Good luck!

    I ask myself the same thing almost every night! I feel like I’ve tried almost everything in the book! I try to drink tea, but sometimes that doesn’t even do it. When I’m done with the tea I just want something else. Or, I want something WITH the tea!

    I’m pregnant, also, and keep doing the same thing and not even good food – chips and cookies! Baby doesn’t need it, I don’t need it, but yet I go back for more in the middle of the night. Please figure this out. :) I’m 35 weeks and tired, so I blame it on laziness, but that doesn’t explain the “I’m not hungry” part of it.

    I am soooooo with you! My night time snacking has been out of control recently too. Last night…and this was just totally crazy and stupid..but I found myself mindlessly eating one of those big cookie cakes that I had bought for my kids. And, when I say mindlessly, I do mean mindlessly…I was standing at the counter, with a knife just cutting pieces off and eating them. I don’t even know how much I ate! I didn’t even just cut a piece and put it on a plate! Oh yeah….it was really, really bad. I needed to confess….thanks for providing the forum for me to do so! :) Maybe my confession made you feel better because I am quite certain your snacking last night was not as bad as mine was! Mine was almost on the verge of binging! And..did I feel better afterwards?! Of course not…I felt disgusting. Oh well…today is a new day….or should I say tonight is a new night! :)

    It’s the bane of my existence, that’s what it is. I read an article about “styles” of overeating once that said nighttime eating was usually stress related. Well, be stressed, been relaxed and done it in both states!

    I’m guessing it’s nerves and excitement over the new gigs!

    You might be tired and your body needs food to try to stay awake!

    If hunger isn’t the question, then eating is not the answer. What’s “eating” you – fatigue, stress, boredom? For me, I was snacking when I wasn’t hungry due to habit and fatigue – what I really needed was sleep. If you can’t go to bed, then change your location – OUT of the kitchen! Brush your teeth and tell your family that you’re done eating for the day (just saying it will make it more real and make you accountable).

    I read an article on hunger being divided into 3 categories: head hunger, heart hunger and the real hunger. If you don’t have any matter of the heart bothering you and you are not hungry(as you said) then it must be the head hunger.
