Food and Insomnia – What to Avoid and What is Okay

0 99

TV and food are the most popular things to eat or watch when you are plagued by sleep problems. Sometimes they are great and make you feel better, but sometimes they might make you feel worse. You may feel like what you ate didn’t help you sleep at all, or just added to the amount of exercise you need to do to get rid of what you eat at night.

So the two biggest problems with insomnia and food are weight gain and less sleep. An overnight diet isn’t usually the healthiest, mostly because the effort of eating healthily takes away at night.

Here is a list of foods to stay away from if you don’t want to gain weight or sleep:

You May Like These
  • candy
  • Ice
  • Snacks with high sugar content
  • Muesli with a lot of sugar per portion
  • Coffee
  • Pop with a lot of sugar and/or caffeine

Here are some ideas for things you can eat without worrying about your diet or quality of sleep:

  • sugar-free snacks and ice cream
  • Diet pop without the caffeine
  • caffeine-free coffee
  • Vegetables with low-fat dips
  • baked chips
  • Crackers and reduced-fat cheese
  • Beef jerky

Of course, there are more options than just these, and there may be more things to avoid as well. But with these ideas, hopefully you can change some of your habits, become healthier, and get the rest your body so desperately needs.
