Trainer Tip (Dietitian): Sleep & Your Weight Part 3
Nutrition tips for getting a good night’s sleep:
- Try to avoid alcoholic drinks before bed. It may help you feel sleepy, but it prevents you from reaching deep, restorative sleep.
- Feel free to have a light snack before bed but try to avoid large meals as it may cause indigestion which can interrupt sleep.
- While it’s great to stay hydrated, avoid chugging those last couple glasses of water before bed so your sleep won’t be interrupted with bathroom breaks.
