    Last meal

    Looking for opinions from people that have problems sleeping on or off cycle . My biggest problem is sleeping , I've always been that way . And because of that I need to adjust my last meal or maybe all of them to make it so my last meal isn't so late . I eat 6 times a day every 3 hours . My first meal starts at 6:30 then 9:00 ,12:00 , 3:00 , 6:00 , then 9:00 . Eating before bed is a sure fire way to make sure I'm starting at the back of my eyelids till the alarm goes off . Any suggestions on how I should rearange my food regimen to combat the last meal ?

    I'm like that too, I typically save my more fatty meals for the last one. Mainly because fat helps with satisfaction and helps you not wake up hungry. I also will either eat say turkey or something with tryptophan in it or supplement with it and melatonin to help keep me asleep.

    As I write this, it's 11pm and I'm eating a 5 oz pork chop, with some brown rice, salad with small amounts of dressing and sugar free Jello.

    many ways to skin a cat

    you could always combine meals 6-9 and just eat around 8ish.

    could add in some cottage cheese, natty PB, sugar free pudding, or jello, or other fibrous foods.

    Oddly enough melatonin has the opposite effect on me among many other things . I could be stone drunk I'll fall asleep for 2 hours wake up wide awake and be sober as a catholic at confession .

    I have to have some fats and carbs in my last meal or I roll around in bed until my stomach hurts so bad I have to eat or I wake up 3-4 hours in and have to eat and then can't fall back to sleep until the carbs start running there way through my body..

    If your meals are affecting your sleep that much you might try melatonin before bed.
    Its a good natural solution if adjusting your diet doesnt seem to help. I am way to afraid to try prescription sleep aids.
