I don’t. I have trouble sleeping when I am hungry.

Yes, I do! And my friends alwasy make fun of me when I tell them that I don’t like to eat before bed because if I do I won’t be able to sleep. They find it strange…

Quite the opposite for me. When I’m full it feels like I can sleep for ages!

No, unless I ate something that didn’t agree with me.

Yep it makes it quite difficult to comfortably snuggle.
If I lie down with a full stomach I would get nauseous and I don’t usually eat before bed because it would most likely wake me up in the middle of the night with that uncomfortable throw up feeling..

Definitely not. When I stuff my gelatinous mouth until I feel like I am going to burst, sleep is nothing but just a blink away.

I like to be full when I sleep. Sometimes I make toast before sleeping. But I am not a big foodie so forget. But I do definitely like to be full.

When I eat, it’s very likely I’ll be asleep soon. It makes me incredibly drowsy, full or not. Unless, as @YARNLADY says, if whatever I ate upset my stomach or gave me acid reflux.

If I am very full or the meal was very rich, I get heartburn if I lay flat. Otherwise comfortably full belly makes me want to nap.

I just have trouble sleeping, period!

@glacial Just a funny way to call myself fat. LOL

@Self_Consuming_Cannibal Ohhhhhh, did you mean “gluttonous”?

Self_Consuming_Cannibal's avatar

@glacial No I meant gelatinous. You know like jello shakes and wiggles? If I was morbidly obese, which I’m not it would be funny if my lips were fat as well. So fat in fact they shook just like gelatin, just like other parts of fat people’s bodies. I don’t even know if this is possible, but I have a very vivid imagination and I can actually picture someone in my head who’s so fat that there mouth is fat and “jolly” too.

@Self_Consuming_Cannibal Haha – I asked because I couldn’t imagine getting food into a “gelatinous mouth”, let alone trying to chew it. Gross!

As someone who has struggled with getting a proper meal schedule down thanks to university, I have far more trouble sleeping when I go to bed hungry (especially when I feel too guilty to eat late at night.)

downtide's avatar

It’s the opposite for me – I sleep better when I’m full.

But I lose my appetite completely when I’m tired. If I haven’t eaten by 9.30pm I won’t eat at all until the morning.

nailpolishfanatic's avatar

Yes, sometimes though because I always end up having massive pain in my stomach and lower abdomen area.

Self_Consuming_Cannibal's avatar

@glacial It is pretty gross when you think about it. That’s what makes it so wonderful.

No but the wife does, all that food simply has to be farted out sometime.
