Why you shouldn't eat so late at night and then go to bed.
‘Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise’. A nursery lullaby we all must have sung. If you want to doze off early you must also dine early. No wonder hardly anyone follows the routine of an early dinner. It is said that always sleep after an hour or so after your dinner. Have you ever thought why? The reason is the body takes in the food and then the food processing mechanism starts in the body. The one who consumes dinner late night is often found sick. The reason is he does not give the body much time to consume the glucose from the previous food. Following are the reasons why you should not eat late night:
- Eating late at night could lead to acidic reflux in the body. This could be due to indigestion.
- It will impact your sleep leading you with morning nausea or a headache.
- Eating late also leads to excessive weight gain. The stubborn fats in your tummy may be one of the reasons for your late night meal.
- You can also have the risk of high level of blood sugar
