It’s bedtime, and you’re feeling snacky.

But as you stand in front of the fridge, you’re a little worried your snack choice might end up keeping you awake all night, so what to do?

No worries.

Here is a list of the worst foods to eat before bed.

As long as your snack choice in under 200 calories, and doesn’t have caffeine, and as long as it’s not on my list, give it a go, and satisfy that salty or sweet craving!

Here are the 10 worst foods to eat before bed.

1. Coffee

You know you’re not supposed to drink coffee, even decaf — which actually DOES contain caffeine, by the way — but why?2

That caffeine is a stimulant, so it’ll keep you awake, but it’s also a diuretic, which means you’ll be up and down to relieve your busy bladder all night, too.

Yikes, the double-whammy!

Naturally, then coffee tops m list of the worst foods to eat before bed… or drink, I suppose.

2. Chocolate

Oh, how I do love chocolate, but it’s also one of the worst foods to eat before bed.

Sure, dark chocolate is loaded with antioxidants, but it also contains caffeine, and a lot of sugar, which will also give you a buzz you just don’t need when you’re trying to relax, unwind, and doze off.2

3. Cheese

For the lactose-intolerant or for those who suffer from heartburn, cheese can be one of the worst foods to eat before bed.

It can also be heavy in your tummy while you’re trying to sleep, even if you’re not intolerant.

Enjoy the cheese and crackers earlier in the evening.

4. Spicy Thai

Chips and salsa or Spicy Thai may sound like the ideal bedtime snack, but wow, are you asking for trouble!

The spicy peppers and other ingredients may cause heartburn, and for some, they’ll even give an unexpected energy boost.

Rather than sleeping, you’ll be up cleaning the bathroom, washing your car, writing that novel…
