One of life’s great mysteries


I would really like someone to explain this to me. Why is it that if you eat something just before going to bed you actually wake up painfully hungry, whereas if it’s been a couple hours before bed since you ate you wake up feeling pretty normal? There must be some kind of biological explanation for this but I’m at a loss to surmise what it might be. It doesn’t seem logical to me.


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. Yes, dammit. My personal version of that phenomenon is that if I eat breakfast, I am ravenous for lunch; yet if I skip breakfast, as you’re absolutely not meant to do, I don’t even really get hungry for lunch. What’s that about?
