Night Owls Late Night Eating and Weight

I tend to agree with your article on digestion being lowest at night, and I’ve been abusing it by eating dinner sometimes at 1 am in the morning, or even after that time! Because I get caught up doing things on the computer, and I get home late at night too, between 8 pm and 9 pm. I want to change this, but am underweight at this point in my life – surely going for so many hours without food – will make me even thinner? Won’t my body start to cannibalize itself if I don’t eat for so long overnight? Besides, I get hungry pretty quickly after a light meal.
What about those who are night owls, and a bit underweight? This kind of eating might be good for those who carry a bit too much weight but so many hours without food might be detrimental for those who tend to be thin.
As I go to bed late – around midnight – I would be hungry again if I ate before 8.30 pm.
Would having a glass of goats milk kefir be all right if I was hungry before bed? I can’t sleep if I’m hungry.
Please help me with this question.
