Eating a bedtime snack can be a positive thing, but it depends on the foods eaten. As a rule, you should try to avoid eating a late night snack unless you’re truly hungry since midnight cravings can sometimes be from boredom or anxiety, not hunger.
Here are 9 foods to avoid before bed for a better night’s sleep.
Theobromine a stimulant in chocolate increases heart rate and causes sleeplessness.
Caffeine affects your sleep, try not to have any later than six hours before bedtime.
Increases your body's temperature, which keeps you awake and uncomfortable.
Contains high amount of fat content, which is the most slowly digested macronutrient.
Digest rapidly, so the spike in blood sugar could throw off some of your sleep hormones.
Fat in the cheese and the acid in the tomato sauce can have a negative impact on your sleep quality.
Fries are greasy, which is a sign that they are high in fat.
Drinking too much water before bed, make you awake multiple times to urinate.
May help you fall asleep, but it prevents deep, sound, restorative sleep.
