Eating pasta, even with nothing else on it right before bedtime, is never a good idea. Yes, it’s a quick and easy fix for people who want to combat their craving before hitting the sack, but it’s actually not a healthy bedtime snack. Pasta is packed with carbohydrates and has lots of calories, which are prone to settling around your waist. Eating pasta before bed will also spike your insulin levels, as well as blunt nighttime HGH (Human Growth Hormone) production. This is not good since around 80% of this fat-burning and muscle-building hormone is released during sleep. Avoid it by saving the carbohydrate-rich food like pasta to eat earlier in the day.
