When it comes to sleeping, I am very serious.
I look back on my time sharing a tiny dorm room in college, and I wonder how I ever got any sleep! Now, I like sticking to my routine for getting a good night’s sleep.
Lately, that routine involves making sure I don’t go to bed hungry.
If I’m hungry, I’ll end up tossing and turning to the rhythm of my growling stomach, losing precious hours of shut-eye. Plus, I like to work out in the mornings, and it’s never good to hit the gym starving. So, I am a huge proponent of the late night snack.
However, certain foods consumed before bed can totally inhibit your sleep, and affect your overall health in general. These treacherous sleep killers can mess with your blood sugar levels, induce heartburn, and overwork your digestion system, ultimately keeping you up throughout the night and preventing you from getting quality sleep.
But if hunger strikes shortly before you hit the pillow, you don’t have to ignore it altogether!
