Waking up middle of night, starving

Ever wake up in the middle of the night ravished and wanting food like at no other time, almost like you've been starved.
 
This has happened to me a few times exspecially when I'm doing double sessions, of cardio in early AM and weight training in evening. 
 
Even if my nutrition is perfect e.g frequent meals, right portions and macro-nutrient balanced it sometime happens.
 
Do you guys ever get, this, if so what do have to get you fast asleep again that is conducive to your goals, mine right is fat burn..

    your body is telling you that you are NOT getting enough calories a day. If you are convinced that you are getting enough(believe me, youre not), try eatting a salad with balsamic vinegar, egg whites, or just plain chicken breast. itll stop the hunger without too many calories.

    I've had this at times and if I can afford to based on my calories for a given day I'll have a protein shake already mixed and ready in the fridge so if I wake up I run to the fridge, chug it, and get back to bed.

    It can't heart to get up and have a protein drink.....It actually will help, cuz you'll have protein being digested 24/7.  Just feed your urge.

    I have the same problem.. even If I was resting that day and ate a lot. I had to eat last night before bed because I was hungry even though I didn't want to because I have always heard you should not eat at night. And I still woke up hungry.

    Am I really not getting enough calories during the day?

    Mirrors don't measure progress, they just show how much more there is left to do.

    This happened to me last night! woke up 3 am and my body refused to go back to sleep until i had something to eat! I did morning and evening cardio! What does this mean? Should i cut out the evening cardio?

    You don't have to eat every 2 hours, but a protein drink/shake in the middle of the night would stop that urge to eat so much.
