When I was taking Ambien, I was a big sleep eater. My sonambulent self really had a thing for canned foods, especially canned beans and canned olives. This would not have been so bad if I had not been eating ENTIRE cans of food.

You really need to see your doctor about this.

Lol on the lunches. I used to blame my boys for eating entire boxes of Little Debbie's then they kept disappearing after the boys were on their own. emoticon

RIET69 - I had to chuckle at that one - the lunch part. I don't know which was funnier - your younger brother eating them every night, or your father continuing to make the lunches in the first place - I would have given up on making them :-)

When I was a kid, my younger brother would do that. We had no idea who was eating my dad's lunches that he packed for the next day. Every morning they were gone, no trace of them. One time my brother walked to a friend's house and by stepping into a puddle of water he woke up. He told my parents that he had found himself outside when he woke up. My parents then figured he was the culprit eating dad's lunches. He grew out of it with the watchful eyes of my parents.

I drink green tea in the morning and a velerian at night and sleep ALL NIGHT LONG.

My doctor used to prescribe me ambien for insomnia and I woke up one morning with chicken bones in my bed...

If you are not taking any sleep medication, I would talk to your doctor about it and get set up for a sleep study if possible.

If you are taking sleep medication, it may be the culprit.

I agree that your best bet is to talk to your doctor about what's been going on. If needed, they can refer you to a sleep specialist who can help you work through the problem.

Sounds like I should be going to the Dr. about this one. No I don't take ambien since I'm already a sleep walker I can't. I read the link on webmd and it could be a sleep disorder or am eating disorder or both...

I don't, but looking back I suspect my mother used to. It was impossible to have a coherent conversation with her when she got up in the night to eat! She was almost zombie-like preparing food, speaking gibberish and going to bed. We blamed her medication, but it could have been a sleep-disorder.

I do however sometimes get up in the night to eat, typically if I have eaten too low during the day and wake up hungry, or worse yet, is so hungry I can't sleep at all. I've noticed I'm not making the best choices 3 in the morning.. (This is why my hubby hides his treats ;))

Discuss it with your doctor perhaps? It could be that there are ways to treat this? Or you could lock up the worst offenders at night? Or better yet, have your hubby hide them ;) Or if you are like me, make sure you don't go to bed hungry..

I don't but I have heard of many people who do - it is a form of sleep walking.

Below is a link that may help you to deal with this problem:

You are best to talk with your Dr to arrange tests to see the cause and then the appropriate treatment can be put in place.

Regardless of the treatment itself, make sure that you kitchen is as safe as it can be so that you don't end up consuming cleaning products, etc.

Where it comes to your husband and HIS convenience foods, is it possible that he have a nominated cupboard that is locked that you don't know where the key is? OR a tumble lock with a series of numbers?

I wake up and find bowls, spoons, forks and wrappers where I've eaten in my sleep. I can't completely get rid of convenience foods because my husband would have a fit. I'm using up all my calories...any ideas?
