Getting hungry before bedtime

Recommended Posts

I have completed my first week of Whole30 and I am starting to feel the changes, hurray!


One of the best things about it is that I can go for many hours without being hungry, as opposed to before when I HAD TO eat every three hours. But an hour or two before I go to bed I always get hungry, and I don't get it. I don't want to go to bed hungry, and I don't want to eat much before bed as I suffer from acid reflux.


Is it okay to have a snack a couple of hours before bedtime?


Or could I do something different about my dinner to avoid the hunger?


Dinner usually consists of meat (chicken or fish), baked veggies or salad. It's hard for me to get enough fats as I cannot eat eggs due to intolerance, and I cannot eat avocado or nuts due to IBS. I usually eat olives or use oils on my veggies. 


This seems complicated, but I hope someone can try to help.

I try to eat supper at 7 PM and go to bed at 9:30. If you can't eat your last meal just a few hours before bedtime, you might need to eat a mini-meal 2 hours before bedtime to make sure you are good for the night. Or have the mini-meal in the afternoon so you can eat supper later.
