Health & FitTaylor Swift Just Revealed She Struggles With A Bizarre Sleep Condition
Having a baby? You won't get a good night's sleep for 6 years, study says
Not surprisingly, mothers reported losing the most sleep in a study of more than 4,600 German parents published in the journal Sleep.
- While making an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Taylor Swift shared a few very intimate details about her personal life.
- One in particular? That she has a tendency to involuntarily sleep eat, meaning she wakes up in the middle of the night and gorges in the kitchen.
- Sleep eating, like sleep walking, is a health concern that can be controlled when under the care of a physician.
There are many sides to Taylor Swift. First there was girl-next-door Taylor, then femme fatale Taylor...can't-come-to-the-phone-because-she's-dead-Taylor...snake-exploding-into-butterfly Taylor...and, most recently, dumpster-eating-racoon Taylor. (Her words, not mine.) Allow me to explain:
The Vitamins Taylor Swift Swears By For Anxiety & Stress
The pop megastar says taking vitamins has become part of her personal wellness routine. "Vitamins make me feel so much better!” she wrote. "I take L-theanine, which is a natural supplement to help with stress and anxiety. I also take magnesium for muscle health and energy." Even if you’re not a touring musician like Swift, these supplements might sound intriguing because, as Swift said, they’re "natural." But just because something claims to be "all natural" doesn’t always mean it’s safe.
While making her first appearance on TheEllen DeGeneres Show in quite a few years, the queen of pop held nothing back (except for, ugh, the scoop on her next single). She did, however, reveal that she has a habit of sleep eating. Ellen challenged Taylor to several rounds of "Burning Questions," during which the talk show host asked, "if you can’t sleep in the middle of the night, what do you do?"
Without skipping a beat (pun intended), the singer responded by saying, "I go downstairs and rummage through the kitchen and eat whatever I can find."
Sounds harmless enough...but Taylor's not done explaining. "It's really less like a human being and more like a raccoon in a dumpster. The next morning we walk downstairs and we're like, 'what happened here'? and I don't remember."

And what modifications (gasp!) she makes.
If you're confused, don't worry, so is Ellen, who immediately inquires if this, uh, hungry habit helps her sleep.
Taylor's answer? "It's not really voluntary." In fact, she doesn't even remember it, but she knows it happens because it could have only been her (or her cats).
Round of applause to Taylor, who's honest and quite dry delivery make this personal revelation pretty hilarious-at least the cackling audience thought so. But, in Ellen's words, "Sounds like [she's] got an issue." And the comedian isn't wrong.
Sleep eating is when a subject, almost entirely unconsciously, wakes up at least once, if not multiple times, during the night to eat and drink excessively, even if they're not actually hungry or thirsty, according to American Sleep Association.
Because sleep eaters tend to consume foods high in calories and sugar, or other foods they wouldn't normally consume, they're at increased risk for weight gain and sickness due in part to dangerous combinations of food or actually ingesting inedible items. Not to mention the amped up chances of injury by, say, chopping or preparing a hot dish while asleep.
What's The Deal With L-theanine, Taylor Swift's Anxiety Remedy Of Choice?
A dietitian says the supplement isn't dangerous, but more research is needed.
As you can imagine, sleep eating disrupts sleep, which is no bueno for overall health as well. The good news? It can be better managed when under the care of a doc, who might prescribe specific meds and recommend you also consult a nutritionist to make sure you're diet doesn't leave your body with cravings later in the eve, per the American Sleep Association.
Here's hoping Taylor finds a way to put this habit behind her, stat.
