15 Worst Foods to Eat Before Bedtime


13. Celery

Yes, it’s surprising to see celery on the list of the worst foods to eat before bedtime, but you should avoid it right before going to bed in order to have a deep, uninterrupted sleep. In fact, there’s nothing wrong with eating celery in the evening, but it’s a natural diuretic and it can increase your rate of urination more than usual. This means you will wake up a few times during the night.

Don’t eat too much celery before bed or don’t eat it at all. You can reach for carrots instead. They are loaded with Vitamin A which is good for your skin and for your vision, and it won’t disturb your sleep.

I like to eat carrots, red bell peppers and a little bit of celery with homemade hummus before bedtime, but I do it in moderation. Green smoothie is a healthy bedtime snack as well.
