Hi, I’m Maria Marlowe, a Certified Health Coach and author of Detox without the Deprivation. In my weekly “Ask Health Coach Maria” series, I answer frequently asked questions related to health and wellness. Have a question? Ask me here.
I am a generally healthy woman, who eats well and exercises, but for years I have faced something that has been uncontrollable: late night eating. I have heard there is something called Night Eating Syndrome (NES), and I think I may have it. I don't crave or eat anything weird but there have been times that I don't remember that I've eaten something until the next morning. I’ve mentioned it to my doctor, but she just blows it off. Help!
Constant late-night eating is a rare but serious disorder that should definitely be dealt with, not brushed off!
