Watch Eating and Drinking Before Bedtime

NOVEMBER 01, 2004

Research has shown that eating too close to bedtime can impede sleep. Sleep experts have recommended that individuals finish eating at least 2 to 3 hours before their usual bedtime. They said that eating or drinking too much may make individuals less comfortable when settling down for bed. The experts suggested the following:

  • Avoid a heavy meal too close to bedtime
  • Stay away from spicy foods because they may cause heartburn
  • Restrict fluids too close to bedtime to prevent nighttime awakenings to use the bathroom
