How to avoid bedtime hunger

Consuming sufficient amounts of calories can help to prevent getting hungry before bed.

Don't wait until dinner to eat two-thirds of your food. Instead, aim to eat 30 grams of protein at your main meals and three to five servings of cruciferous or high-fibre vegetables at lunch and dinner.

If we don't consider our nutritional inventory for the day, we may experience hunger at bedtime if the body feels undernourished.

Peanut butter has protein and fat, and rice cakes have carbs.

Bananas contain potassium, which is a natural muscle relaxant and can help you fall asleep. They also contain tryptophan, which can aid in a restful night's sleep.

In an ideal situation, we would eat a healthy dinner, followed by something small and sweet. Then in a few hours, we would sleep all night. But the reality is different. We stay up later, eat a small dinner or are hungry without reason, and crave a bedtime snack.

Nuts contain blood-stabilizing proteins and healthy fats. The dark chocolate is just a good amount of sweet.

A rumbling stomach at night is an indication that you need more calories and nutrients. So, aim to eat foods that give you better nutrition.

Having something carb-based, protein-based, and fat-based before bed helps to stabilise the blood sugar and keeps your body from waking during the night.
