Food Choices Can Sabotage Your Sleep

Studies show that there’s a link between sleep quality and nutrition. If you’re not sleeping well, you may not be eating well. You can’t fix one without fixing the other. What and when you eat affects your sleep. Most of us know that those who have problems sleeping should avoid caffeine for 6 hours before bedtime and avoid alcohol and nicotine in the evening. Also, data shows that eating less fiber, more saturated fat and more sugar throughout the day is linked with lighter, less restorative sleep. In one study, researchers tracked diet and sleep for a group of healthy adults over the course of five nights and found that indeed, food choices during the day did affect sleep. Eat well, sleep well.
