strange eating habits ...

Posted , 3 users are following.

does anyone have any strange eating habits?  

I am secret night eater - have been for years ... which will nott helped my size.

Anyway, I've found it a very hard habit to try and break, but have come up with an idea of trying to make it work in my favour whilst on orlistat.

So if I wake in the night and feel the urge, I'm effectively going to have my breakfast then and not in the morning ... so will eat cereals then as opposed to the normal time.  

thoughts?  do you think it will work that way round for me?

    Hello Lis

    I used to get up in the night and raid the fridge, but thankfully I have now got myself out of that habit!

    Personally I dont think its a good idea for you continue what you are doing, in my opinion I feel its better to have "structured" meal times, unless of course you work nights,

    Thanks for replying daisy - I'm trying my best not to get up in the night but sometimes I just can't help myself ...  Thought this way at least I'm not effectively having four meals a day ...

      I know its not easy, but even if you do wake up try not to go to the kitchen, maybe have a glass of water by the bed and drink it.

      I believe the secret to cracking weight problems is to retrain eating habits. Try to focus on things long term, getting up and eating in the night is not a good idea. :-)

    Why not try some fruit, if your really hungry and the hunger is stopping you from sleeping, something light for your stomach.

    or just have a cuppa or the options hot choc xx
