To be able to rest quietly all night long, there are some foods that you should avoid eating before going to bed. First of all, you should not eat foods rich in hydrates and proteins.

It is important to know this: after a meal, our body produces glycogen that is stored mainly in liver cells and muscles. Glycogen is a kind of fuel that our body uses for its proper functioning for the next 8 to 12 hours.

When this glycogen supply is exhausted, our body searches for another fuel and it will use it by default in our fat stock.

The problem is that if we eat too much at night, our bodies expend little energy during sleep, they will have to store this “excess fuel” in the form of fat. There is also the risk of poor sleep because of food that is not well digested.
