    I get home on Thursdays around 9:45 and eat dinner then. Unless eating late causes sleep issues, there's nothing wrong with it.

    If I haven't had dinner, I eat dinner.... Or dessert...

    It depends on how I feel. If I'm really hungry, I'll eat before bed. Otherwise, I bank the calories for a larger meal the next day.
  • On a few occasions I've got home after 11pm, a couple of times I've cooked, ate, then straight to bed, but I'd rather just go to bed, because tiredness, and I'm guessing poor digestion..

    If I haven't eaten which is highly unlikely I would eat, chill then bed

    I generally raid my snack cupboard and have a Nakd bar or some oatcakes or something.

    Depends if I'm hungry or not but I pretty much never last past 7pm without being hungry, so...

    I would normally eat something if I got home late without having had dinner but it might just be a snack if it's really late. I usually have some stuff prepped that I can quickly make if it's before 10pm.

    Depends on how hungry I am. I tend to value sleep over hunger though.

    If I feel hungry, I will have something to eat. If I don't, then I don't bother. Through this journey, I am getting better at listening to my body and learning to distinguish between hunger and habit.
    Also kind of depends on how 'late' it is.

    I would just have a light snack, and save the calories for later in the week.

    Depends on how hungry I am. I try to avoid eating directly before bed because of acid re-flux, but I also can't fall asleep on an empty stomach. So I'll usually settle for something light if I am hungry and then eat a copious breakfast the next morning.

    I've had dinner after midnight when I got home late.

    I might nibble on something small (handful of nuts or a yogurt) if it's late and I'll be going to bed soon. But that depends on if I feel hungry or not. If I'm not hungry, I'll drink a tall glass of water and then go to bed and maybe eat a bigger breakfast the next day.

    If I'm hungry I'll eat dinner... if not I'll just go to bed. So far in life I've never not been hungry though.

    It depends on how I feel. If I am going to bed soon I won't eat much and will keep it light or I won't sleep.

    depends if I'm hungry. I don't usually eat breakfast so on occasion I've gone to bed without eating so I usually have breakfast the next day instead.
