Wake up from sleep - get a snack?!?!
Last night I woke up in the middle of my sleep and ate a snack (luckily it was only about 150 cal). I was half asleep with my hand in the 'fridge thinking "this is weird" but still ate it and went back to sleep right away.
I had this happen once before when I was on a VERY restrictive diet - but yesterday I had about 1700 cal before bed (5'7'' female at 150 - very appropriate).
My workout was a low intensity day, although I did some new exercises with the weights. I just can seem to figure out what went on between my brain and my body that said "wake up, eat!"
I am not on any medications either.
Anyone else have this happen? Or have a clue what is going on? I am just hoping it doesn't become a habit!

Have a glass of water instead. Most times when you wake up in the middle of the night, it's thirst but our body registers it as hunger. Besides, the water will take the edge off and you won't have the calories

it's just some random thing. Humans are weird.

Can totally relate!
I have caught myself doing this on several occasions and the next morning I am like "Did I or didn't I?" One thing I try to do is to make my last drink of water or tea about 2 hours before I go to bed - that way I am not getting up to pee in the middle of the night. When that does not work, I have to make myself wake up and realize what I am doing. And when all else fails - walk an extra 30 minutes to work it off and then some!

It may mean that you are getting enough sleep! Although most of us tire ourselves out and deprive ourselves of sleep to the point we're compressing our sleep needs into 6-8 hrs, this isn't natural. The natural pattern is to go to bed soon after sunset and half wake up for a little while for the "night watch." I'd say it's healthy.
Now, if you are worried about what you might eat in the night, put a fruit cup or some other healthy thing right at the very front of the fridge!
