Sleep experts offer do's and don'ts
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- Diet plays a significant role in your health, including how well you sleep.
The National Sleep Foundation explains:
- Eating too much saturated fat and too little fiber can affect how well you sleep.
- Consuming too much sugar can make it more likely that you'll wake up in the middle of the night.
- Avoiding food and drinks that are spicy, greasy, sugary or alcoholic can reduce your risk of sleep-interrupting heartburn.
- Getting more B vitamin-rich foods, such as dairy, eggs, meat, poultry and fish, can regulate melatonin and help stabilize your sleep.
