ABSTRACT
The author discusses his observations on U.S. consumers' food habits. Seven out of 10 SupermarketGuru users polled said that they eat a snack before bed, with almost half saying they have a drink--and a whopping 9% said that they will sometimes eat a full meal before sleeping. Perhaps folks are eating in bed because they are not getting enough sleep there. According to the National Sleep Foundation, 68% of American adults do not get the recommended eight hours of sleep.
