    Only hungry at night

    For some reason I only get really hungry at night. I never get very hungry during the day, and hardly eat anything. But by dinnertime I'm usually starving and have a huge meal. Why is this, and how can I make myself hungrier during the day?

    Hmmm.......I'm going with crack

    But I know what he's trying to say (only cause I hit the pipe too). It's natural to get hungry in the evening when things are calmer and you're trying to regroup from the day. But you should try to keep your cals at all meals close in number when possible. This will help a bit with late night munchies.

    dbx, you'd earn a smack for that, you would!!

    The reason that this is a ridiculous thread is because if you ate a normal amount during the day, you wouldn't be so hungry, at night. Just man up and eat every 3 hours. If your appetite is low, try eating calorically dense foods, such as pb, or beef.

    No, no, I was serious about the getting hungry at night part. It happens to many of us, me included. Even if you divide your meals properly and eat at 2-3hr intervals, something about the end of your day (for many of us) causes an onset of hunger (or perceived hunger). This is simply where discipline comes in.

    True, I consider myself a pig though; I'm always hungry. You can account for your hunger by alloting yourself a certain number of cals at night.

    You've gotta admit, though; this guy would be better served by eating a large portion of cals in the day.

    Bump...obviously if you eat more during the day you will eat less at night, at least in theory. The 'typical' American skips breakfast, eats **** for lunch, and then pigs out at dinner and for dessert. Don't be that guy.

    By eating breakfast you get a good start on your daily caloric intake. That will lead to better satiety (feeling full) during the day. If you're not used to eating a lot this will be hard at first. However, your body is pretty smart and will quickly adapt to an increased food intake. Don't whine because "I'm not hungry in the morning so I don't eat breakfast." Nonsense. Start eating SOMETHING for breakfast and pretty soon you'll start being hungry when you wake up.
