    Default How to avoid midnight snacking

    I have to get up at 1:30 every night to take ds1 to the toilet as he wets the bed otherwise, anyhoo I'm killing myself as I'm 3/4s asleep and then wake up in the morning to realise I've eaten through the night. Again. Almost every night without fail. Last night it was 2 containers of le rice and a glass of milk.
    Has anyone got any suggestions on how to avoid the fridge when I don't seem to be remembering eating in the first place? And its not necessarily bad foods I'm eating sometimes it's whole carrots, rice crackers etc but the point is I want to stop!

    Maybe one of those fridge latches? That might force you to wake up when you try and open it?

    Oh that's a bloody brilliant idea! I'm hopeless with those things so that may just work

    I've been like that in the past. Compulsive eating. I can't recall how it started or how it ended but I know I gained a ton while I was at it for about a year!
