The reason for feeling unwell in the morning may be the wrong dinner you had yesterday. Not all foods have a positive effect on the body if you eat them before going to bed. Therefore, you should familiarize yourself with such prohibited foods.

The EatThis,NotThat publication told us what foods should not be consumed before bed. There are 10 main ones.

French fries

Never eat this before bed! List of prohibited foods

Because fried foods are high in fat, they tend to be bad for digestion. Eating foods such as French fries shortly before bedtime can cause indigestion, making you feel uncomfortable when trying to sleep.

Tacos

Spicy foods aggravate acid reflux, a condition that can cause chest pain, acid belching, or abdominal pain. Enjoy your tacos well before bedtime, not as a midnight fast food snack.

Red chili peppers

Hot peppers for cooking

When it comes to spices, there is no healthier ingredient than red chili peppers. Although the capsaicin in this hot pepper is known for benefits such as reducing inflammation and even relieving pain, it has a bad effect on sleep.

Cheeseburgers

This high-fat meal can do more than just wreak havoc on your waistline - hamburgers can also ruin your sleep. As a high-fat food, they're hard to digest, potentially causing GI upset when you're trying to relax.

Citrus fruits

Oranges, grapefruits, lemons, and limes are good for their high vitamin C and fiber content. Again, they may not be the ideal snack before bed. The acidity of citrus fruits is another factor in acid reflux. For a fruity treat in the evening, try tart cherries (or their juice). They can help you sleep better.

Candy

A spike in blood sugar is the last thing you need when you want to sleep. Unfortunately, that's exactly what you'll get from eating candy before bed.

Energy drinks

For obvious reasons, energy drinks are the number one enemy of sleep because they don't calm the body, but rather excite it. Therefore, the quality of sleep after energy drinks will be very poor.

Coffee

Drinking coffee even six hours before bedtime can have a negative impact on your night's rest.This is because of the caffeine content.

Tea with caffeine

Both green and black tea are full of antioxidants that are great for reducing inflammation. But enjoy them with breakfast, not at night, as these teas can contain significant amounts of caffeine, which can keep you awake.

Alcohol

Of course, alcohol can relax you in a short time. But drinking alcohol is associated with worse, not better, sleep. Choosing a non-alcoholic cocktail or non-alcoholic wine can create the right mood and not interfere with your rest.
