Different Foods Questions and Facts

What foods to avoid to fall asleep faster?

Things that can prevent sleep:

1. Snacking

When you snack, you’re triggering insulin, which can lead to insulin resistance. This can cause frequent urination at night and sleep apnea.

2. Sugar

Consuming sugar can lead to insulin resistance. It can also deplete your potassium. Potassium relaxes the body.

3. Protein

Protein is a stimulant and will wake you up. Make sure you only have a moderate amount of protein with vegetables. Also, make sure you don’t have your protein too late at night.

4. Coffee and tea

Coffee and tea contain caffeine, which is a stimulant. One small cup of coffee or tea without sugar is fine.

5. Alcohol

Alcohol can dehydrate you, affect your liver, and affect your hormones, which can keep you up at night.

6. Protein and sugar

Combining protein and sugar will raise insulin and can lead to insulin resistance, which will prevent sleep.

7. Drinking excessive amounts of water

Drink when you’re thirsty. Having lemon juice or apple cider vinegar with your water is more hydrating than water alone.
