How Long to Wait Before Sleeping After Eating

Stomach sleepers are just 16 percent of the population , but for that sleepy minority, the tummy-down approach is the way to get your shut-eye. Who can blame them, right? But turning your back to the rest of the sleeping world may be affecting your joints and sleep quality more than you think. Stomach sleeping presents a mixed bag of pros and cons for sleepers. When you lie supine, your spine is strained, which puts pressure on your back and neck joints.

If you eat too late and have trouble falling or staying asleep, symptoms that characterize insomnia , you might wonder: How long should I wait between eating and going to bed to sleep? Is it bad to go to bed too soon after eating? In general, it is recommended that you wait for 2 to 3 hours between your last meal and bedtime. This allows digestion to occur and the contents of your stomach to move into your small intestine. This may prevent problems like heartburn at night and even insomnia. Lying down may cause the contents of the stomach to reflux into the esophagus, leading to heartburn or GERD symptoms. This is more likely to occur if the stomach has not fully emptied by bedtime.

Sleep And Weight Loss

This often comes from the belief that eating before you go to sleep leads to weight gain. However, some claim that a bedtime snack can actually support a weight loss diet.

Adam Cloe has been published in various scientific journals, including the "Journal of Biochemistry. When you go to sleep or go into a reclining position, gravity no longer pulls everything in your abdomen straight down. If you have a full stomach, this can cause acid reflux, potentially resulting in long-term damage to your esophagus. If you have digestive problems when you lie down after going to sleep, you should talk to your doctor and consider making changes to your lifestyle. When you eat food, your stomach churns to help mix the food with gastric acid and break it down. The top of your stomach is lined with a ring of muscle known as the lower esophageal sphincter. This muscle prevents the contents of your stomach from traveling up into your esophagus.
