What Should You Not Eat Before Bed?


Avoid consuming caffeinated beverages like coffee, tea, or energy drinks, as they can stimulate your nervous system and make it difficult to fall asleep.

Spicy foods

Spicy foods can cause heartburn or indigestion, making it uncomfortable to lie down and sleep peacefully.

Fatty and fried foods

Foods high in fat take longer to digest, which can lead to discomfort, bloating, and disrupted sleep.

Heavy meals

Consuming large, heavy meals close to bedtime can lead to indigestion and may interfere with sleep quality.


While alcohol may initially make you feel sleepy, it can disrupt your sleep cycle, leading to fragmented and less restorative sleep.

Carbonated drinks

Carbonated beverages can cause bloating and discomfort, which can make it difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep.

High-sugar foods

Foods and drinks high in sugar, such as desserts, candies, or sugary beverages, can cause energy spikes and crashes, potentially affecting your ability to fall asleep.

Citrus fruits

Citrus fruits like oranges and grapefruits are acidic and can cause heartburn or acid reflux, particularly when consumed close to bedtime.
