Heavy meals before bed at night?

February 22, 2017 10:30pm CST
Have you ever felt that hunger so "uncontrolled" before bedtime that you can not be at peace with yourself until you eat something before bed? Well, it happens to me sometimes... But I never eat anything heavy. Particularly because I don't feel good due to a slower digestion at that time of day.

For my husband and I this is always the issue. Since he works swing shift and gets home at 11:30 p.m most nights he ends up cooking a meal of some sort as well. Many times we try and keep it smaller and simple, but from time to time we do something bigger and end up having it play havoc with trying to sleep later for sure.

Usually I won't feel hungry after dinner at night. But if I drink a cup of coffee, I may feel hungry ater that.

It's a very bad idea to eat heavy food before going to sleep, usually you cannot sleep at all.

I don't often eat before bed, just very occasionally and it would only be a snack.

That happens to me a lot because usually I stay up late at night because of Insomnia. But I know that I shouldn't, it can cause weight gain, heartburn and other issues.

It happens to me sometimes. I am trying to avoid it, eating heavy at night, for me, it is not good with regards to indigestion.

Sometimes I don't sleep until I eat in the middle of the night. It feels good then by not when I wake up in the morning. That however doesn't happen when I have a nice meal few hours before bedtime.

Never have heavy meal just before going to bed. Atleast sleep after 2-3 hours after your last meal.Avoid carbs at night as they do not get burned easily and turn to fats.
