Sleep Eating

The woman featured in this video caught herself sleep eating with a video camera. Night time eating syndrome (NES) is characterized by late night binge eating that often times happens without the person's knowledge. NES as with most sleep walking disorders can be caused by high levels of stress and is also thought to be related to Sleep Apnea along with Restless Leg Syndrome. NES is a dangerous condition as sleep eaters usually target foods with high fat/high sugar. Many people who suffer from NES will take steps to prevent it such as locking the refrigerator, using motion detectors and even eating extra large dinners (so they will not be hungry during the night).

The woman featured in this video is literally asleep while she is raiding the refrigerator and almost appears zombie like while binge eating. (click here to view).
