Connection Between Sleep and Diet: How Food Affects Sleep Quality

The article explores the relationship between food choices and sleep quality, emphasizing that what you eat during the day can significantly impact your ability to sleep well at night. Dr. Chelsie Rohrscheib highlights the importance of food selection for ensuring good sleep, mentioning that certain foods promote sleep while others may disrupt it. Signs that food may interfere with sleep include difficulty falling asleep, frequent waking during the night, heartburn, and indigestion.

The piece outlines foods that encourage better sleep, such as those high in lean protein, fiber, and complex carbohydrates. These foods help maintain fullness throughout the night, prevent indigestion, and promote the production of sleep-inducing hormones like serotonin and melatonin. Conversely, foods that are high in fat, caffeine, or acidity can disrupt sleep by causing discomfort or affecting blood sugar levels.

Portion size is also highlighted as a factor affecting sleep quality, with overeating leading to discomfort and poor sleep. The article concludes with advice on avoiding alcohol and highly processed or sugary foods before bedtime.
