I agree with the previous poster. Your body doesn't know what time it is, so there's no reason you have to stop eating 3 hours before bed. Budget for a late night snack in your calorie allowance for the day if that works best for you. It won't have a negative effect on your weight loss progress.
Hope that helps,

Who says you have to stop eating and drinking 3 hours before bed??
I am the same way, if I don't eat right before bed I can't get a proper night's sleep and wake hungry. I eat the majority of my calories in the evening and have my last meal at 10pm before I turn in. However, *what* you eat before bed could also play a part in why you wake hungry. What do you usually eat for dinner? If you could make your nutrition tracker public I could be of more help.

How can you stop eating and drinking 3 hrs. before bed and get 7-9 hrs. of sleep? That makes it 11 hours between meals when any other time it's 3-4 hrs between meals. I wake up in the night hungry after 4-5 hrs. stomach grumbling. The sleep companion website which I heard on spark radio recommends this but I always wake up after 4-5 hours hungry and then can't get back to sleep. What is more important sleep or food? Thanks!
