How dinner can lead to a bad mood

If you find that you wake up in a bad mood for no identifiable reason at all, it may be diet related.Experts agree that what you eat in the evening will not only have an impact on how you sleep, but how you feel the next day too. Waking up in a bad mood could be diet-related and caused by low blood sugar levels, so it pays to eat well before you head for bed.

Anything high in sugar such as chocolate, cookies, alcohol or foods high in refined carbohydrates such as bread, pizza, chips and pasta may send you off to bed feeling satisfied, but your blood sugar may plummet overnight. According to doctors, this may lead to feeling tired and grumpy in the morning.

Here’s a tip: Eat dinner roughly three hours before bed and try to focus on a balance of protein and carbohydrates.
