Foods to Avoid Before Bedtime

Everyone wants to have a great nights rest without feeling bloated or uncomfortable in his or her stomach. There are various foods that may be harder to digest before bedtime, and may cause heartburn or nausea. Here are some foods that you may want to avoid prior to bedtime.

High-fat foods not only make you gain weight, but they also have an affect on sleep cycles. A heavy meal activates digestion, which can lead to nighttime trips to the bathroom. Eating fried foods before bedtime can result in trouble falling to sleep due to stomach pains, cramping and acid reflux.
Ice cream contains high amounts of fat, which is digested at a slow rate. It also contains a lot of sugar, which can keep you up.  
Vegetables such as, broccoli, cabbage, onions and cauliflower are high in insoluble fiber that moves

slowly the digestive system. These vegetables can make you full longer but also contain
gas-producing qualities.

These are just a few of the foods that you can avoid from affecting your nighttime bathroom runs. Avoiding these foods will lead to better nights rest.
