waking up to eat in middle of night...

i find myself doing this more and more lately. on saturday night, i woke, and i use the term loosely, to stumble across my room and open a box of crackers so i could eat some (maybe 6) and then went on to eat some smoked almonds (about 12). i felt as asleep as i can imagine without still sleeping and stumbled back into bed, falling back asleep right away. last night i woke with the same hunger in the middle of the night. i did not get up and eat, though, bcause it was so cold...

I am a sleep walker/eater too

That is my biggest downfall, I always wake up and eat. So I al least put fruit close to eye level in the front of the fridge (cause that is where I go) so that I at least only eat fruit. THen I go back to sleep. Sometimes I wake up wondering if I ate anything in the middle of the night and have to really think about it.

I have NO CLUE whay that is.

When I go to bed early to get a good night sleep I will wake up, but if I keep myself awake late to get less sleep, I wont wake up at all.

This is a long shot but do any of you take a sleeping pill? they've shown that some sleeping pills cause night time/sleep eating in some people. (Lovely side effect)

I don't take any sleep aids. Actually I don't take anything. I been clean and sober for 11 years. I exercise real early in the AM so that can't be it either.

I saw this on a talk show. Dr. Phil, Oprah...I can't remember. This woman could not lose weight because of how much she ate in the middle of the night. I think they mentioned something about stress, but even the doctors wheren't sure what the actual issue was. The only thing that I would suggest to you all...and I've been considering it a weightloss hypnosis cd that you listen to while you sleep. If it's a real problem, it's worth a shot, right? I can't imagine the cd would be that expensive.

btw...the woman on the show did not fully wake up when she was eating during the night, so she couldn't stop herself.
