How Diet & Sleep Can Change Your Life Food For Thought

    • Nutrition

Anyone who has gorged on a giant Sunday lunch will know just how sleepy it can make you afterwards, it's largely because overeating and the rate of change in blood sugar stimulates an insulin response which may have a sedative effect. Fun fact, 'food coma, was added to the Oxford dictionary in 2014! Joining me is Registered Nutritionist Rob Hobson to help us understand why some foods and drinks make you sleepy while others give you an energy boost, and if food can help us avoid the agony of sleeplessness at night. Does cheese give you nightmares? Can warm milk help you sleep? We separate the facts from the fiction and show how tweaking your diet may help you slow down in the evening and sleep soundly throughout the night.
