I can't sleep if I'm hungry so I always eat a late snack. I'm never hungry in the morning and don't eat until after my morning walk. Then it's only a cup of milk and a piece of fruit. I do eat an early lunch and dinner.
Wow we are all so different and yet somehow I don't feel alone with my problem. We eat an early dinner so am hungry at bedtime. so now I just plan for it.

If I eat sweets to late, I will wake up famished. However if I don't eat, I am not hungry at all.
If I am about to go to bed, and I am hungry, I won't be able to sleep. Once, I had to get up at 2 am to have a bowl of cereal or some nuts so I could fall back to sleep.

I used to get sick if I ate too soon after waking up but slowly I started eating a little something and now over time I have come to where I do wake up hungry and within an hr of waking I usually eat something.
Nope, I can't go to bed hungry. If I am hungry before bed I will eat a light snack like a string cheese and drink a cup of soy milk

I HAVE to have a snack immediately before going to bed otherwise I am starving and can't get to sleep, or get woken in the middle of the night with severe hunger pains and nausea. I do wake up hungry sometimes, but if I have eaten more protein and/or fat for dinner or my bed-time snack, I am not usually very hungry and can hang off for a while before having breakfast, or have a smaller one.

I usually wake up very hungry. I could eat nonstop till noon then my hunger really drops off. I can always sleep hungry. That's not an issue at all.

1. I wake up thirsty and chug back a glass of water. Then I have a coffee. I don't eat until around noon to 3 pm. 2. I can't sleep hungry, I eat the majority of my calories in the evening. My last meal is around 10:30 pm.

I don't wake up feeling hungry immediately. But i get hungry within an hour, hour-and-a-half.
I don't often go to bed hungry. I eat enough in the day that I really shouldn't feel an extreme sense of physical hunger... any feelings like "i want to eat" that occur in the evenings are more out of habit, boredom, exposure to eating-trigger, etc. but I'm not really "hungry." I can think of a couple of instances where I really was legitimately hungry at bedtime, though... in only one case did it bother me enough that I had to get back out of bed and eat something - but it didn't take much. Just a thin piece of toast with a smear of pb, 150 calories or less, and I was fine.
Heh, in days gone by, it was my habit to "feel hungry, so, eat some cold cereal before bed." I could eat 2 or 3 heaping bowls, plus all that milk! Easily! It's amazing how much cereal a person can consume before the "full feelings" start hitting the brain. I am quite glad to have dropped that habit.

1. No, I'm the opposite; I can't eat for a few hours after I get up 2. I don't go to sleep hungry because I like a snack at night, so I plan for it with the rest of my eating earlier in the day.
