Here's Why You Should Not Hit The Bed Soon After Having Dinner

Ever ate so much that the only thing you could think of next is to crash right down? Well, we have been there, too. As amazing as the idea sounds, you would be surprised to know that doing so may lead to indigestion, heartburn, acid reflux, weight gain, and in worse cases, even stroke. You may have seen people going for a walk right after their meals, the idea behind this is to speed up the digestion of the last meal, before they hit the bed. So, what is it about dinner and bed time that doctors and nutritionists around the world are so particular about. Why must you refrain from sleeping immediately after dinner and how much of a window should you keep in between? We have all the answers.

Hinders Digestion

One of the primary changes it would bring about in your digestion. When you are sleeping, your body takes extra effort to digest the food. According to Consultant Nutritionist Rupali Datta, “sleeping right after your dinner may hinder your digestion process. It gets difficult for the food to pass through the intestinal walls. Some complain of the acid pushing back up, causing burning sensation. There is an obvious discomfort while sleeping and a disturbed, inadequate sleep eventually leads to weight gain.”
