The less sleep I get the more I binge eat. Nothing satisfies my hunger. What foods should I eat when I feel like this that aren’t turning to fat?

    Bananas help they have triptophan(sp) for sleeping. Also dried cherries. I eat lots of fruits and nuts in half a cup of yogurt every a.m. and keep moving. Its hard just start out walking or turn on some music you like! And only eat when you are hungry……sometimes its our hormones which make it difficult if we aren’t eating properly. Nibble on carrots or celery helps too. Good luck Barb

    If you are binge eating, you are eating more than you need. Therefore any food you eat that is not used to fuel your body will be stored as fat. When you feel restless, before reaching for something to eat, joural how you feel and see if you notice a pattern of behavior. This question and many more like it are answered in my book “Diet Myths Busted, Food Facts Not Nutrition Fiction.” I know you will enjoy reading it and it will clear up a lot of your confusion about what to eat and why. You can find my book at my website http://www.dietfitnessdiva.com my publisher’s site at http://www.idyllarbor.com , http://www.amazon.com, http://www.barnesandnoble.com, and many other websites.

    Being TIRED is one of the triggers that drives us to eat when we are not really hungry but just tired. Weight loss is negatively affected by lack of sleep. Perhaps addressing the issue of why you can’t sleep with help improve your eating or if you improve your eating your sleep will improve. They all work together for a healthy body and life. I have some recipes for health on http://www.cookingnakedafter40.com that can start you eating better. Let me know how you like them!

    I’m concerned that you’re not getting enough sleep. There is a strong correlation between insufficient sleep and eating too much. Since there are times that not getting enough sleep is unavoidable though, try to keep foods around that are not too “dangerous”–crudites, big bowls of salad (but take it easy on the dressing–salsa can be a good substitute), lower-fat popcorn are possibilities. If you’re craving sweets, ripe fruit can help, as can some yogurt; try some plain yogurt sweetened with maple syrup or honey to control the level of sweetness. Add fruit and a few nuts and you have a filling snack. Good luck–and try to get some sleep!
