The Top 10 Worst Foods to Eat Before Bed

French Fries

Fried foods are often difficult on your digestive system due to their high fat content. Eating foods like French fries right before bed can induce indigestion, which will make it difficult for you to fall asleep.

Tacos

Disregard Taco Bell's late-night "Fourthmeal"; tacos have two major ingredients—high fat and spice—that can interfere with your ability to fall asleep.

Red Chili Pepper

Red chilies are the spicier ingredient when it comes to spices. These hot peppers' capsaicin, while beneficial for things like pain relief and inflammation reduction, isn't the best for lulling you to sleep.

Cheeseburger

A cheeseburger was never recommended as a healthy bedtime snack. Burgers can interfere with your sleep in addition to increasing your waist size, though.

Citrus Fruit

The health benefits of oranges, grapefruits, lemons, and limes are numerous, ranging from their high vitamin C content to their abundant fiber content. But then, they might not be the best snack right before bed.

Candy

Although conventional wisdom once claimed that sugar would make you hyper, a blood sugar spike is the last thing you want when trying to fall asleep. 

Energy Drink

For apparent reasons, energy drinks are the #1 enemy of sleep. They are the complete opposite of calming due to the presence of both natural and artificial stimulant ingredients.

Coffee

Coffee first, though, unless we're discussing sleep. Because it contains so much caffeine, java is known to interfere with sleep. 

Caffeinated Tea

Antioxidants found in both black and green tea are great at lowering inflammation. But since these teas can have high caffeine content, which could keep you up at night, have them with breakfast rather than as a nightcap.

Alcohol

Yes, drinking alcohol may temporarily increase your sense of relaxation. That being said, it falls short as a sleep aid. Drinking alcohol is associated with worse sleep, not better sleep.
