    many possible reasons...

    1. you ate a light dinner (perhaps you just ate salad?)

    2. you ate an early dinner (my mom said that our stomachs generally digest the food we eat within 2 hours)

    3. you have high metabolism (metabolism is even faster when we're sleeping)

    I used to raid the fridge at night,then wonder how I was gaining so much weight. What I do now is make myself a shake with protein powder,one banana,and a cup of 2% milk in a blender.

    This way,you end up feeling full,but you didn't eat much of anything.

    Could it be that you had an early dinner? Maybe have a later dinner. Or a light snack before you go to bed, like a bowl of cereal.

    Eat a bit of protein just before bed, it takes longer to digest

    Because you haven't eaten since suppertime.
