Watch Eating and Drinking Before Bedtime
Published Online: Monday, November 1, 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
- 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
