If we’re not meant to have midnight snacks, why is there a light in the fridge? 😂

Aaah! Am I the only one that gets hungry at night? Just before I’m about to doze off, I feel the need to get up & sneak to the fridge & grab anything that catches my eye.

Last night it was milk tart. 🙊

I am adement that my tablets make me do it. Can this be a side effect of my tablets?

I am on a diet & I’m breaking it at night! It’s so bloody irritating.

Does anyone else have this problem? How do you get round it? 🍭🍪🍫

  1. My appetite is entirely dependent on what cycle I am currently in. When I am manic, it is a struggle to eat at all. I don’t remember to eat, my body never sends off signals that I’m hungry, and no one ever notices I’m not eating until I’m all skin and bones. During these episodes I force myself to drink pop and eat any type of sweet I can get down. I’ve noticed the sugar keeps me going when my body rejects real food.

    When I am hypomanic my appetite is quite peckish. I don’t have much of an appetite but I feel moved to pick at food all day long and all night as well. Sometimes my body wakes me up in the middle of the night, just so i can pick at some food and fall bak asleep. Mostly in this phase my body craves natural foods like fruits, veggies, milk, and beans. And sugar. Lots and lots of sugar.

    When I am baselining my body is more in line with society’s standards of eating. Shoving large amounts of food down my gullet as often as it starts grumbling. I eat everything I can get my hands on during this cycle. This is where I make up for the fact that I am not eating much when I am manic. You can tell when I am baselining because I always have ‘food belly’ – an overextended stomach that looks similar to a pregnant belly.

    Also I have noted that my body seems to prefer eating right before sleeping. It seems to help put my mind in a more sedate place so I can drift off to sleep.

    1. funny, when i am manic (which is a lot) i crave food and fortunately my metabolism allows me to eat heartily…i have this relaionshio with peanut butter on ritz crackers at 2am and when i count out 32 crackers (each gets its own slab of peanut butter) i am good to go. i drink carbonated water with them and that tells me it is under control. by the way, i also eat when i am depressed and especially when the mania collides with the depression. it’s good to see how others deal with cravings. thanks for sharing.


  2. I to find myself always eating around 1am. As an anxiety suffer on anti deppressants my sleep cycle is so muddled, thats because i don’t go to bed till early morning and wake up later in the afternoon. For me its my bodys way of telling me its lunch time. As a result to this i gained 17kilos just by being on these medications. Like my dr has told me fighting these cravings will only cause more anxiety, if we are to snack go for a healthy option. I hope everything works out for you don’t stress to much.
