Foods to Avoid Before Going to Bed, Must know this

Pizza:Just like pasta, many of us love pizza also. In today’s fast paced world, the youngsters, the young married couples, children or working professionals, will not hesitate to have one or two big pieces of juice pizza as their dinner. Dial a Pizza delivery number and get it delivered at your doorstop. You don’t have to cook. So lucky, aren’t you? But, while you will relish that piece of pizza, you won’t believe what harm it does to your body. Very greasy and cheesy, with the ingredients having high levels of acidity, your digestive system finds it difficult to break it down. Result: you have a bloated stomach, you feel uneasy while sleeping and in due course of time, fat accumulates in the body.

Candy: Well, studies have also shown that eating candy before going to bed is bad. Eating any sugary products leads to fats built up in your body. In fact, Some says that candy eating before bed time has an impact on your brain waves and they can lead to nightmares.  So, for a relaxing night, don’t eat candies before bed time.

Red Meat:Red meat, whether dry fried or gravy, is always yummy. It is storehouse of proteins and iron. But then, if you have it just before bed time, it will do more harm than good to your body. It will prevent you from a deep, relaxing and refreshing sleep.

Dark Chocolate:Doctors have always considered dark chocolate to be good for your brain and memory. But there is no doubt that it is a high-calorie food. So eating dark chocolates before bedtime is a big “No”.  A small or a big piece of chocolate may work as a dessert for you, but being rich in caffeine and other stimulants, it will make you more active, putting your mind to work, rather than allowing you to have a peaceful night.

Alcohol of any Kind:You had a wonderful time at your friend’s party. You drank and danced. But then, did you realize that you had consumed a sleep killer. Drinking alcohol before bed reduces your night sleep as it causes night sweats, making you wake up repeatedly. And it is very high in calories as well.
