Eat your dinner early

Eat your dinner early

We suggest that you have dinner at least 3 hours before going to bed. It has multiple benefits and here are the top 4.

Better Weight Control

Researchers suspect that the longer lapse between meals allows the body to process the food more efficiently. During later evening hours, people tend to eat high-calorie, low-nutrient foods that are easy to overeat. And if you skip meals earlier in the day or delay dinner, you’re more likely to eat excessively in response to intense hunger. Bypassing your earliest meal of the day — breakfast — increases your body’s response to the hormone insulin, which raises your risk for body fat storage and obesity.

Less heartburn 

Heartburn is a tight or burning sensation in your chest, just behind your breastbone, that may worsen when you bend over or lie down. One way to avoid heartburn, is to avoid large and fatty meals late in the day. Eating earlier allows your body time to digest food properly and lowers the risk of acidic stomach contents rising back up into your esophagus (food pipe). This occurrence, also known as acid reflux, often accompanies heartburn. Lying down after eating makes heartburn worse, so leaving time between dinner and bedtime helps prevent it.

Better sleep

Heartburn caused by eating near bedtime can interfere with restful sleep. Eating late — particularly large amounts — can also interfere with sleep by causing abdominal discomfort. Consuming too many liquids before bed, in the form of milk, juice, soup or other foods, can cause frequent urinating.

More energy

Eating throughout the day, starting with a balanced breakfast, promotes positive energy levels, mood and brain function. Postponing meals, on the other hand, can zap your energy, leaving you with low blood sugar, exhaustion, low mood and a hefty appetite. To avoid these risks, aim for balanced meals and snacks at regular time intervals. These attributes also play an important role in maintaining optimum energy levels.
