Eating just before sleep?
Your body has to work pretty hard to digest food at any point. Sleep is supposed to be a time of rest, so imagine going to sleep and really -- not sleeping.
No wonder we wake up groggy and have weird dreams through the night.
Here's some things that have happened to me:
- Stomach acid can pour out of your throat (acid reflux) since you're in a horizontal position.
- Vivid, weird nightmares
- Really groggy in the morning and an unfocussed day.
- Throws off my internal clock for the next 48 hours.
The best thing if you have to eat late, is to sit up after eating for a few hours if possible. Ate light? Then you only need to do this for an hour or less. Heavy dinner? Be prepared to stay upright for at least a few hours.
- What happens if you don't eat for a week?
- Is it difficult to live in Bangkok as a foreigner?
- On cities suing Netflix, Hulu and Disney
- Why do humans like bacon?
