Taylor Swift was on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ for the first time in four years to promote her new single “ME!” and the episode concluded with the famous "Burning Questions" segment where Ellen asks some really amazing and personal questions that the guest has to answer.
Besides questions regarding her next single, indeed a question revealed quite a lot about her sleep and food habits. When DeGeneres asked what Swift does in the middle of the night when she can’t sleep, the Bad blood singer revealed that she sleep eats at night, as in she involuntarily eats at night, wondering what happened in the kitchen last night.
Taylor Swift said: "I go downstairs and rummage through the kitchen and eat whatever I can find, and it's really less like a human being and more like a raccoon in a dumpster," She further said, "The next morning we walk downstairs. We're like, 'What happened here?' I don't remember." When DeGeneres asked if the eating helps her sleep, to which Swift replied, "It’s not really voluntary." Ellen asked what we all wanted to ask, "So you sleep eat? … Sounds like you’ve got an issue," to which Swift replied "Yep."
Nocturnal Sleep-Related Eating Disorder
Sleep-related eating disorders usually exhibit abnormal eating patterns during the night, some can be so freakish that they might almost seem crazy because the person may even cook and eat during the night while not remembering of their activity at all the next morning. While only very people suffer from this, nocturnal sleep-related eating disorder (NS-RED) can occur during sleepwalking. People usually walk into the kitchen and even prepare food without a recollection for having done so the next morning.
Symptoms of this sleep disorder otherwise can be visible only if the NS-RED occurs often enough. The person may experience weight gain and sometimes may be more at the risk of Type 2 diabetes.
