I'm not quite sure if this is RT4, but I eat this if I need to....a bowl of oatmeal (no butter, no sugar) with coconut milk. If not oatmeal, eat a few cooked potatoes or a bowl of rice, something more than lettuce to get you through the night.
You need to eat more. Period. I used to wake up every hour of the night in eat... that means my body was telling me I need to eat more during the day!!! I know if I wake up and eat it is because I didn't eat enough that day. Starches and cooked vegan foods can be much more satiating as well!
I totally agree Amy. My sleep was disturbed this past summer when I was over exercising and not eating enough... I would wake up ravenous in the middle of the night.
It also seems like my body feels less satisfied/nourished on cooked meals so when I've dabbled in rawtil4 my body felt out of sorts and my sleep wasn't as nice.
Jen, my suggestion is to do whatever you can do to make your dinner bigger. Maybe you can do dinner #1 at 5:30 and dinner #2 at 6:30. What about dates? They go down easier for me in larger quantities than do bananas.
It sounds like false hunger, that may be detox. Some say that feeling isn't actually hunger at all. If you can get back to sleep and get enough, I say don't worry about it. I often can't get back to sleep until I eat. I do have trouble eating enough during the day.
Simple fix, you need to eat way more! 3000 cals is the bare minimum for gents: Aloha to 30BaD's Welcome Wagon!
1. Other food starts to look and smell good.
