Is it excessive?
Do you want to do something about it?

Don't think I could wait to eat dinner till that late at night and I know dh sure couldn't. lol

Looks like eating at that time works well for you in preventing snacking before going to bed, Hilary.

I usually do have an evening snack. We don't go to bed until six or seven hours after finishing dinner. Mid evening, I begin to feel too weak when my blood sugar drops and I have to have a little something. I do not have diabetes or hypoglycemia. This does not happen if I eat more for dinner, but I normally don't do that. I seldom snack during the day and, oddly, I almost never feel that blood sugar drop during the daytime either. My evening snacks are any one or two of these..........

piece of fruit
1 whole wheat bread slice plain
ww bread with peanut butter on it
1 tsp. peanut butter
small Activia Light yogurt container
popcorn
pecans or other nuts
small sugar free pudding

I have a question for you Gail..... why do you need to eat something to stay "awake" at night,, you're supposed to be winding down..... just wondering. In that case try drinking a plain glass of water,, as you might just be thirsty and it will pop you up for awhile but won't disturb your sleep (unless you drink a liter or so , then you'll be awake but for other reasons. LOL)

i'm trying hard Hilary,, not working every night but got much better than it was. It's a slow process. We eat around 7 pm and I go to be about 11:30 or so,, never much later and sometimes as early as 10pm but then read for some time. I do not howeever get up at the crack of dawn as you do, usually not until 7:30 8am lately.

If I waited that long after dinner before I went to bed I would definitely be hungry for something! lol

Yummy looking snacks you got there, Donna.
