NIGHTMARES WITH DINNER?

To have a baby-like sleep allow 2 to 2:30 hours between dinner time and going to bed. A heavy meal for dinner stresses the digestive system

During sleep time the digestive system should be at complete rest to allow other systems of the body work at its maximum potential. This is the case of the adrenal system. In other words, hormones like cortisol are balanced during sleep time. If cortisol levels are high in the morning you are tire before starting your day!

 If you go to bed with food in the stomach, your digestive system will use energy that the adrenal system could use to balance your cortisol levels.

High levels of cortisol in the morning caused by lack of sleep, low energy and not being hungry to eat breakfast is the vicious circle many are experiencing today.

All this vicious circle can be fixed just by having a light dinner to digest before going to sleep.

The inconvenience of a fast-paced world has dictated us to have our biggest meal of the day at dinner time. This is not suitable for our health and nourishment.

 

Recommendations:

  • Don’t eat and go to sleep
  • Have a light dinner
  • Don’t eat after 7:00 to 8:00 pm
  • Have a big lunch and a light dinner
  • If you have to have a late dinner, prefer a blended meal

 

Light dinner options:

  • Soup and Salad
  • Wrap and Salad
  • Veggie stir-fry
