01/7Ditch these foods in dinner for a better sleep

‘Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper’ is an age-old phrase, which describes the healthy way of dining in just a few words, but do we actually follow it?

We all have heard about the benefits of dining early and eating light, but does it actually impact sleep? Sadly, yes! What you eat and when you eat makes a huge impact on your sleep patterns. This is the reason why nutritionists suggest avoiding foods that can disturb your sleep cycle. So, next time before you plan your dinner make sure you skip these foods.READMORE

02/7​How does food affect your sleep?

Every food has a different impact on your digestion, gut health, body weight and sleep. Since dinner is the last meal before sleep fasting for 8 hours so it happens to be one of the most important meals of the day as while you are sleeping your body metabolizes the food consumed.

Thus, it is important to consume foods that are easily digestible and do not lead to acid reflux, stomach ache, discomfort or bloating and mess up with your sleep. Thus, the best way to avoid this is by tweaking your diet and avoiding foods that can keep you tossing and turning throughout the night.PlayUnmuteLoaded: 0.52%FullscreenREADMORE

03/7​High-fat foods

If you are planning to shed some kilos, it is best to avoid high-fat foods for dinner. This is because high fat foods take longer to metabolize and digest. Thus, it adds on to the fat deposits in the body and leads to weight gain.

04/7​High sugar foods

No wonder, it is impossible to imagine dinner without a hearty sweet dish, but you will be surprised to know that consuming sugary and starchy foods for dinner can instantly spike your blood glucose levels and may cause insulin imbalance, which may be harmful for patients suffering from Diabetes. Also eating starchy food for dinner can also lead to weight gain as the excess starch gets converted into sugar, which takes a lot of time to metabolise.

05/7​Deep Fried foods

While we all love deep fried foods, eating those for dinner may not be a great idea. The excessive use of oil, high fat protein and salt together may need a lot of time to digest, which in turn leads to discomfort, bloating and acid reflux. So, make sure you do not consume your favourite fried foods or junk foods before evening so that your body gets ample time to digest and does not mess up with your sleep.https://107f625e789bc2a10d97def70fd6228c.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.htmlhttps://107f625e789bc2a10d97def70fd6228c.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.html

06/7​Spicy foods

Eating spicy food at night can be soul satiating, but it can be risky for people suffering from gastric problems. Eating spicy foods at night can cause heartburn and acid reflux.

07/7​High protein

Make sure you eat proteins around the day, but not for your dinner as high protein foods take a long time to digest, thus it causes bloating and discomfort.
