6. Red meat
It’s not recommended to consume any meat before sleep, because it takes longer to digest. Red meat, especially processed meat, is particularly bad food to eat late at night. The thing is that red meat is packed with fats and proteins, which is not actually bad, but it keeps the body busy breaking down it the entire night, causing discomfort and sometimes cramping.
Avoid a night full of twisting and turning and keep your systems at peace by eating healthy bedtime snacks. Red meat has also a higher insulin response and it can increase your risk of type 2 diabetes, so it’s better to avoid eating it in the evening. A hard-boiled egg is a great bedtime snack that you can eat instead of red meat late at night.
