How Late is Too Late to Eat Dinner?

Eating a heavy meal later in the evening or snacking at night will interfere with our bodies ability to relax and fall asleep.

Mealtimes can have a huge effect on our ability to sleep.

Eating a heavy meal later in the evening or snacking at night will interfere with our bodies ability to relax and fall asleep.

In Ayurveda, it is said that the digestive process is slows drastically at night; I think most of us can certainly attest that it doesn’t feel good to try to sleep on a full stomach at night.

Eating or snacking late at night can leave us suffering from acid reflux and congestion – both of which can hamper a good night’s sleep.

I recommend eating dinner at 6p if possible; if not, then try to finish eating by 7pm and avoid snacking afterwards. When I implemented this into my own life, my sleep quality improved dramatically.

How about you? Are you a late night snacker?
