Do you ever get hungry during the wee hours of the night or the early morning hours while you’re asleep? Have you had hunger pangs so bad they wake you up from a sound sleep? I have. What do you do about it when it happens to you? Me? I get something to EAT!
I read an article several years ago stating that people like me who get hungry during the night and get up to eat, have a problem. These professionals/experts say there is something missing in our lives. According to these experts, it’s a deep-seated emotional need that has not been fulfilled.
Needless to say, I threw that diagnosis out real fast, never to think about it again. Truth be told, the only thing missing in my life when those monster hunger pains hit is "FOOD".

Experts, professionals, or whoever has the time or inclination, can analyze me till they are blue in the face. I'm fine the way I am – I say take it or leave it to them. I get hungry, I go eat!
I think they're just jealous they can’t do night eating without getting really really fat, or developing heartburn, or something along those lines. They might be prone to acid-reflux attacks if they eat late at night. I don’t. I eat and fall right back to sleep, with a satisfied tummy.
Ooops, it looks like I'm getting ready to jump up on my "high horse" and get all “high and mighty”. I’d better quit now.
Again I ask you: Do you get hungry while you’re asleep? Have you had hunger pangs that wake you up? I know I do. What do you do about it when it happens to you?
