It is advisable not to eat just before going to bed and there should be a 2 hour gap between dinner and bed time. This is not absolutely right. You need not go to bed hungry convincing yourself that you are doing your self a favor.
Many end up snacking if they are working or studying late into the night and have hampered sleep patterns or weight gain due to unhealthy snacking.
This is a misunderstanding. All you need to do is not to eat a whole meal or a full meal before going to bed. A small healthy snack is very much allowed to beat night cravings.
Snacks can be fruits or 1/2 of low fat yogurt or a glass of warm milk or even buttermilk. Even a quarter bowl of cereal with milk or half a sandwich can work if you are eating within your limits.The time between dinner and the pre-bed time snack should be atleast one hour or a little more. This will help to curb any midnight fridge raids or disturbances in sleep.
