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 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
