I had the same problem for years i would get up to eat in the night and honestly thought i had no control over it(had a eating disorder in the past and felt it was part of that) but i have train myself out of it and havent woken to eat for a good few years now. It is habit to a degree and all habits are hard to break but can be done it will be hard for the first month or so then it will be come the norm.
I do the same. You're not alone. It's totally messing up my training too and getting me quite down too. Let me know what your research shows.
Cheers for that. I know I def do it more when I'm stressed and feel low. I ate a whole pack of cadbury fingers last nite. Well actually, I did stop when I saw the last one in the pack and chucked it in the bin! It is a difficult process. I've signed up for Reading half and got charity place for flm (never ran more than 9miles) so I really wanna beat it. I've read about using other sources for outlet like boxing, breathing properly, yoga. Running is great but can stress your body out and mentally tire esp if you're focussing on PBs. Rather not turn to drugs. Also read ginseng, st john's wort can be beneficial. Good luck with it and keep me posted. .
Have you ever considered that you may be dehydrated? It is easy to misinterpret this as hunger
A good trick I've used is to drink a large glass of water before I eat anything. If I'm still hungry after the water then I figure my body needs the fuel.
