Do you wake up in the middle of the night to eat?

You know that your eating habits have gotten out of hand when you wake up hungry in the middle of the night and you get up to eat. Something that I learned from a dietitian is to eat a 1/2 cup of peanuts right before going to bed at night. What the peanuts do is act as natural sleep aids. They allow the body to slowly digest something and keep hunger pangs at bay. If your stomach is busy digesting then it tends to keep you asleep. The peanuts are also high in protien and low in sugar so that prolongs the digesting time.
