I am 30 year male can eating late snacks be bad for my health?

I am 30 year male can eating late snacks be bad for my health?

Depends on the snack: In general it is not wise to eat close to bedtime because of increased risk of reflux and because it takes energy for us to digest food and our bodies can't get as complete a rest if we are digesting during sleep. But this depends mostly on the type of snack; things like organic fruit or nuts are healthy. Things like chips (anything fried) or sweets are not healthy to eat at any time of day. ...Read more

Almost everything we eat past 8pm is unhealthy - unless you make a good effort and have some fruit or something. When you eat too close to bed, you also worry about reflux during the night, so make sure to eat at least 2-3 hours before going to bed. ...Read more
