Late Night Eating

I usually eat quite a bit at night, before going to bed.  When I get home around 10 or 11 pm, I’ll make a few things for a pre-midnight snack.  Last night I made a huge Chinese no-chicken salad with a bunch of almonds and Top Ramen, then had more almonds, some whole-wheat cereal and fruit, and a corn tortilla with avocado.  I’d say I eat 1000 calories before bed at least 4-5 times a week.  I still lose weight eating this way, because I’m just fueling the body.

Before learning about real food, I used to eat 2000+ calories on my late night(ly) trips to Jack-in-the-Box (6 tacos + 1 Jumbo Jack w/o cheese +3 egg rolls = 2070 cal) or McDonald’s (30 McNuggets + large fries = 1910 cal).
