Beat insomnia by changing the way you eat

We were recently skimming over some typical insomnia advice when we came across this nugget; apparently, you can improve your odds of getting a good night's sleep by eating small, healthy meals rather than large, unhealthy ones.

The theory behind this is that your body won't have to put as much energy into digestion. To be honest, we're not sure why this would help us sleep any better.

It's no wonder insomniacs are so frustrated with hearing 'advice' like this. It's no help whatsoever and it trivializes the condition that millions of us suffer from.

    Diabetics are supposed to have a light snack before bed. When I had gestational diabetes, I was allowed 1 starch and 1 milk exchange–animal crackers (six or eight, can’t remember) or some ginger animals from Trader Joe’s, same amount, were one exchange. I’d have my handful, eaten slowly, and my glass of milk. They weren’t very sugary, so it couldn’t have contributed to insomnia–but that snack was to prevent the blood glucose from tanking during the night, not that such was ever a problem for me.

    I can see not having a heavy meal while dead tired and then falling over, only to lie there awake, or to awaken in an hour or two. I will say that I can do myself eventual damage by having a few simple carb exchanges, which often leads diabetics to fall over into bed, but I’d like to keep my sight, limbs, and kidney function for as long as I’m alive.
