If you normally have trouble sleeping, then you really want to make sure to avoid a few foods before bed. According the the weight loss blog ACTABIT, one of the things to avoid before bedtime is protein (like burgers) because it takes longer to break protein down. And that means it could very well cause heartburn. Another thing to avoid is ice cream (oh no!!) The combo of sugar and fat are likely to energize you-not at all what you want before bed. Take a look at some of the other things on the list-you might be surprised at what else made the list.
