During Adar I replace the coke with a bottle of Yaakov DanielsFebruary 22, 2010 10:02 pm at 10:02 pm #683556tomim tihyeMember
Don’t drink too much- you need a good night’s sleep!
Oatmeal cookies and warm milk are soporific.February 22, 2010 10:14 pm at 10:14 pm #683557Be HappyParticipant
Fruit!February 22, 2010 10:18 pm at 10:18 pm #683558shev143Member
cereal and milk , popcorn . or ice cream are our favesFebruary 22, 2010 10:37 pm at 10:37 pm #683559
Protein–maybe yogurt, cheese or egg–is a great choice for a bedtime snackFebruary 23, 2010 12:00 am at 12:00 am #683560
Eat light cookies and a cup of Tea, so you can breakfast in the morning.February 23, 2010 12:02 am at 12:02 am #683561
Really you should keep back from eating at all at night even if you’re hungry. Drink something instead.
But I sometimes do snack on an ices or fruit. Try not to eat too much more than that though.February 23, 2010 4:31 am at 4:31 am #683562
Poster, a piece of fruit is always a good idea.February 23, 2010 7:23 am at 7:23 am #683563
I ended up eating a danish, and now that it is morning, I really regret it!February 23, 2010 7:39 am at 7:39 am #683564anuranParticipant
Fried rice.February 23, 2010 1:44 pm at 1:44 pm #683565
Only liquids before retiring for the night. Give the stomache a chance to rest and not make it work too hard digesting a lot of food before sleeping. Fruit a good way to start the day before eating breakfast in the morning, because of the fruit fiber.February 23, 2010 1:49 pm at 1:49 pm #683566
Fruit or chopped veggies.February 23, 2010 2:21 pm at 2:21 pm #683567
Poster, you should force your mouth closed at night!!
AFTER EIGHT, DOUBLE WEIGHT!!
Sometimes after supper I am really hungry(really!), but I just use all my self control them.
I’d rather cheat on that choco during the day but after supper- no food.
It doesn’t pay…try it…February 23, 2010 3:49 pm at 3:49 pm #683568
smartcookie, for a week straight I dieted, no food after supper. It felt great. Sometimes I feel like I will not be able to fall asleep being so hungry. I have such a hard time controling myself. Therefore, I try not to bring cookies and cakes into my house so that I dont give myself the test. Last night…..February 23, 2010 8:01 pm at 8:01 pm #683569
Poster- sounds just like me. I do not allow junk into my house bec I have little self control. That really works. Its the best diet!
But if cake lands in my house for any reason…then its terrible..February 23, 2010 11:03 pm at 11:03 pm #683570
I try to buy only healthy snacks that I can munch on like vegetables, rice cakes, fruit, popcorn,February 24, 2010 2:26 am at 2:26 am #683572
You may be thirsty and not realize it. Your body sends you “hunger” signals and they are really because you are thirsty.February 24, 2010 2:27 am at 2:27 am #683573
To those who said fruit- I am allergic to fruit- what should I have instead.February 24, 2010 3:07 am at 3:07 am #683574
realtalk eating a stalk of celery (calming), or a nice juicy carrot loaded with vitamin a are a good choice. They are light to eat as a snack before retiring.February 24, 2010 5:05 am at 5:05 am #683575
OK, if you are not fleishig, a piece of cheese is excellent. it is protein, has lots of L-Tryptophans, and calcium, and is light. if you are still fleishig, try some crackers or a rice cake with peanut butter.February 25, 2010 1:29 am at 1:29 am #683576yoyoMember
i think if ur milchige and watching ur weight- mehadrin makes this delicious fat free ice cream!!!!
also try some whole wheat, spelt or oatbran pretzels!!!! believe me their really delicious!!!!
also salad bag with light dressing can be really filling yet not hard for the stomache- hope this helps!!!1February 25, 2010 7:26 am at 7:26 am #683577
yoyo, pretzels are loaded with carbs, but they are filling. A salad bag with a light dressing is a very good idea. I love the idea of fat free ice cream, just the type of food i like!March 8, 2010 4:52 pm at 4:52 pm #683578
I cannot have fruit veggies or milk products and try and stay away from any extra carbs- what am I supposed to eat when I get hungry?March 8, 2010 5:01 pm at 5:01 pm #683579
eggs or some type of soy products, if you can eat those.
edited to add: what do you eat the rest of the time?March 8, 2010 5:06 pm at 5:06 pm #683580
Realtalk- how about some sugar free, low calorie ices? That should be refreshing.March 8, 2010 6:53 pm at 6:53 pm #683581
Realtalk, you could have a grilled chicken cutlet with Pam, or you could make a ceviche with fish or imitation lobster, you could have a can of hearts of palm or popcorn.March 9, 2010 5:09 am at 5:09 am #683582melechalmakloMember
eat lettuce! its a sedative so it calms u down and its almost no calories 😉March 9, 2010 5:56 pm at 5:56 pm #683583jewish grlMember
y dont u just eat supper later and go to bed right after tht!!March 9, 2010 7:12 pm at 7:12 pm #683584boredstiffParticipant
the best diet is to only eat 3 meals a day,but u need lots of self control for that- and it takes 21 days to break a habbit- i know its a long time, but eventually u’ll get used to not eating after supper.try it!April 9, 2010 1:45 am at 1:45 am #683585
anon: why do you think I get so hungry?
smartcookie: I try not to use splenda
mybat: I want a light snack- not a meal?
melech: can’t have lettuce
jewish grl: I do have supper later, but it is not an option to go to bed right after- am on a late schedule.

Thanks peeps, for all your suggestions but I need something light like a veggie but not quite. For ex: I will wake up @ 5am really hungry- What should I eat?April 9, 2010 3:04 am at 3:04 am #683586
What about making a Waldorf Salad and keeping it refrigerated for this purpose. The veggies, slices of apple, and walnuts, should fill you up.April 9, 2010 4:16 am at 4:16 am #683587
At 5am when you wake up really hungry – you eat NOTHING.(Besides if there’s any medical reason involved).
Under normal cicumstances, you don’t have to eat every time you’re hungry. Certainly not at 5am.April 9, 2010 2:20 pm at 2:20 pm #683589
Did anyone mention nuts? That’s a pretty tasty and healthy snack.
There’s such a big variety of them.April 9, 2010 2:27 pm at 2:27 pm #683590YW Moderator-80Member
You can edit your post for 5 minutes after you hit “send post”. You don’t need to send another one.April 9, 2010 2:38 pm at 2:38 pm #683591
Oops, sorry…I didn’t realize I sent it twice. Do I need to pay double now?April 9, 2010 2:53 pm at 2:53 pm #683592
smartcookie, why shouldn’t you eat if you are “really hungry”?April 9, 2010 4:11 pm at 4:11 pm #683593
Because 5am everyone is hungry as it is abt 10 hours since supper. But as long as ur not fainting from hunger, you should wait another few hrs until breakfast.
We don’t need to feed our bodies as soon as the last meal was digested.
As long as your getting 3 nutritious meals a day, and yes of course you can snack on something too. But after supper its best not to eat until you wake up the next morning.April 11, 2010 11:18 pm at 11:18 pm #683594mischiefmakerMember
DON’T EAT!! its not worth it. I recently started dieting and the only three meals i eat r breakfast,lunch, and dinner. I also have two other snacks in the day. NEVER will I allow myself to eat at 5am.April 12, 2010 1:01 am at 1:01 am #683595pascha bchochmaMember

I am one of those chocolate haters!April 12, 2010 1:21 am at 1:21 am #683597
To the Waldorf salad: I CANNOT have FRUITS or VEGGIES.
5am was an exaggeration its more like 3 and it is because I haven’t eaten anything but lunch and yes I know it is not healthy!
To the suggestions of nuts, Thank you it is perfect!April 12, 2010 3:25 am at 3:25 am #683599
Realtalk- I can’t believe a person can actually hate chocolate!!
But anyway, I’m trying to understand if you wake up during the night from hunger, or are you just waking up and you happen to think you’re hungry then?
If you’re waking up from hunger then you MUST eat a normal meal in the afternoon hours.
Also, is there any specific reason why you only eat lunch? Because you really should eat a light meal later on(suppertime), this way you’ll avoid eating right before bed. If you’re not eating supper, then of course you’re hungry late at night.April 12, 2010 4:13 am at 4:13 am #683600mischiefmakerMember
What do you do if you’re plain and simply in the mood of fressing?! I’m trying to diet but it takes an awful lot of self control not to eat when you’re just “in the mood”. I chew gum but how much gum can you chew?!April 12, 2010 10:03 am at 10:03 am #683601
Gum to me is a no no. Makes me hungry.
About the fressing, dont we all have the same prob?!!
Seriously, you gotta try to make urself realistic limits.
Oh, and keep extra food out of the house. Works best.April 12, 2010 10:25 am at 10:25 am #683602pascha bchochmaMember

Well you have heard of your first choc hater. If someone makes something with choc I will not eat it!!!!!!April 14, 2010 2:47 am at 2:47 am #683604Dr. DovvshteinMember
