The Worst Foods to Eat if You're Trying to Get a Good Night's Sleep

It’s 3 a.m. … and you’re wide awake. Again. Did you forget something at work? Did you leave the stove on? While these thoughts are enough to keep anyone up at night, the food you ate before bed might be part of what’s really to blame. While there are plenty of snacks that can help you sleep (turkey, anyone?), there are certainly some foods to avoid before bed.


And if weight loss is your goal, getting enough sleep — at least 7-9 hours, according to the National Sleep Foundation1 — plays an important part. Deep, restorative sleep helps keep your body’s natural circadian rhythms running smoothly. Because circadian rhythms influence so many of the body’s functions, including your eating habits and digestion2 disrupting them could impact your weight loss. To keep your sleep schedule, circadian rhythms and weight loss on track, consider avoiding these foods, which might make it harder to get a good night’s sleep.


Check out the 4 worst foods to eat before bed and rest easy knowing you’ll be making healthy, sleep-friendly food choices from here on out.
