I’ve stopped eating late at night

One of the first things I’m focusing on to improve my sleep is to stop eating late at night.

I've stopped eating late at night

In recent months, I’ve been feeling hungry around 9:00 or 10:00pm and have been having a snack like a glass of milk and NuTrail Blueberry Cinnamon Nut Granola or some organic peanut butter. In fact, sometimes I would even wake up at 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning, feel hunger and go for another glass of milk and granola snack or spoon of peanut butter.

I’m committed to changing this as I know through research that eating at night negatively affects sleep and overall health.

I’ve been successful the last few nights and my last meal of the day has been around 6:00pm. One of the hacks I’ve used is to make myself a glass of psyllium hull fiber around 8:00pm. This along with a glass of CALM magnesium powder and teaspoon of Manuka honey before bed has calmed my hunger and I haven’t woken up and eaten anything in recent nights.

I’ve dropped a couple of pounds during this time which may simply be water weight, but I feel that I am a bit lighter and on the right track.

I’ve also taken fewer trips to the restroom at night since I made this change to stop eating late at night.

I know this is a very basic lifestyle change that will pay big dividends over time. It’s a rudimentary step in the sleep hacking journey, but you have to master the fundamentals to be great at anything and not eating late at night is certainly a primary pillar to achieving better sleep.
