I remembered reading from a health magazine that the best time to take your last meal is 3 hours before sleeping time. This will enable the food to digest properly before the digestive system 'dozed off' with you. Also, after this period of time, you will feel hungry and may end up eating once more. So 3 hours is the ideal time lapse.
