Some foods will wreak havoc on your insides if you eat them before bed. Indigestion, heartburn, and even acid reflux are all side effects of misguided late night snacking, so it’s important you avoid certain foods.
Avoid these types of foods:
High-sugar, high-carbohydrate treats like cookies or ice cream
Greasy, fatty, and heavy foods
Large meals that make your digestive system work longer and harder
That means things like candy and fried food should be skipped over entirely. You should also avoid spicy foods that can cause too much acid in your stomach. Lastly, avoid all caffeine and alcohol:
If you do have a snack before bed, wine and chocolate shouldn’t be part of it. Chocolate contains caffeine, which is a stimulant. Surprisingly, alcohol has a similar effect. “People thinks it makes them a little sleepy, but it’s actually a stimulant and it disrupts sleep during the night,”
Avoid these foods, stick to the simple snacks and you’ll make your stomach happy enough to take you to sleep town.
