You know how sometimes you get really weird dreams at night and the first thing someone says is, “what did you eat before sleeping”? Yup. Turns out that, what you eat before bed has an effect on your body.
Maybe, the reason why you can’t sleep isn’t because witches are chasing you. Rather, the food you’ve been eating before bed are causing all the troubles.
Here are 5 foods to avoid in order to have a restful night.
1. Ice cream
Ice cream is high in sugar, which can spike your insulin levels and high insulin levels have been shown to make it difficult to fall asleep. Beyond that, most folks eat ice cream late at night—as opposed to at, like, six pm. Late night snacking on ice cream can lead to increased cortisol levels, which is the stress hormone that can make it difficult to fall asleep as well. (Source:eatthis.com)
