To eat before bed or not to eat before bed? That's the question. This is currently a controversial topic in nutrition—some suggest you should have something to eat before hitting the sack, others suggest you shouldn’t.
The next time nighttime hunger strikes, instead of opting not to eat or going off the rails with something salty or sugary, drink a full glass of water then wait 20 minutes to see if your hunger was satisfied. If it was not, reach for a healthy—and possibly sleep-inducing snack—like a banana or Greek yogurt.
