I have a bad habit of eating more calories at breakfast and lunch than at dinner. I think that is why I'm so hungry. This is also bad because I take a medicine at dinner that must be taken with 500 calories or more. I never make it to 500 calories on my low carb diet. I guess my medicine is less effective. Note: I'd take it at breakfast or lunch, but it makes me tired, so dinner is the best choice. I go to bed by 9pm or 10pm at the latest and usually eat dinner at 7:30pm on the weekdays and 6:30pm on the weekends.
Have you tried a whey or casein protein shake before bed?
